At last year’s Anti-Trafficking Day the heads of EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies made public their commitment to address trafficking in human beings in a coordinated, coherent and comprehensive manner. Following this joint statement, in addition to the adoption of the EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings into the EU Policy Cycle, CEPOL has partnered closely with the Commission, EU agencies and Member States to provide a comprehensive anti-trafficking training and learning portfolio.

To further raise awareness amongst European citizens and law enforcement officers the EU Anti-Trafficking Coordinator will come together with CEPOL, Europol, Eurojust and Frontex to hold a joint online event open to the general public and, importantly, law enforcement officers, dedicated to the newly-adopted EU trafficking in human beings strategy and policies supported by the EU.
