Project summary

C.A.S.E. is a six-month initiative, funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, which aims to enhance the capacity of Central Asian beneficiary countries to combat transnational organized crime and terrorism through training targeting cross-cutting needs.

The INTERPOL Virtual Academy – our cutting-edge digital training solution – will be used to provide these upskilling opportunities. Through C.A.S.E., beneficiaries will be able to participate in two
four-week small private online courses, developed by the initiative, focusing on gender mainstreaming for law enforcement and biometrics. Officials from the region will also be able to learn more about the Organization and how our tools and services are instrumental in the fight against transnational crime, through a tailored version of the INTERPOL Policing Capabilities Programme course.

The digital training will encourage the participation of law enforcement officials from specialized departments, including officers working on transnational organized crime, human and drug trafficking, border management, counter-terrorism, and biometrics, as well as officials working at INTERPOL National Central Bureaus (NCBs) in the region. All courses will be developed and delivered using a professional policing approach, with emphasis on the importance of transparency and accountability within law enforcement.
