Police Training on Child Rights & Child Protection:

Lessons Learned and Manual

This book is the final outcome of an 8-month project to evaluate and consolidate lessons learned in relation to police training and sensitisation in the international arena of work with street children. This project was developed in response to international demand for improved information on police training in order to reduce human rights violations against street children.

The project has involved: participatory evaluations of two existing projects in Bangladesh and Ethiopia (including participation of street children), which took place in August and September 2004; feedback from an international questionnaire (67 questionnaires returned from 47 countries); desk-based research; and input from NGOs, police and international experts involved in police training.
