Today, is Safer Internet Day! The internet is a wonderful thing � opening up new sources of information and opportunities for learning and sharing. But it also has certain risks � such as invasion of privacy, cyberbullying, disinformation, exposure to potentially harmful content and predatory behaviours.
EUPOL COPPS is proud to be supporting its law enforcement partners to keep Palestinians safe online:
The illegal use of the internet and the darknet poses a serious threat to people, says Michele Tarlao, Adviser on Anti-Narcotics and Organized Crime. For this reason, our advisers have financed, supported and delivered trainings on organised crime in cyberspace, Anti Money Laundering and International Judicial Cooperation among other topics.
We recently supported colleagues from the Palestinian Civil Police and Ministry of Interior of Palestine to attend a course offered by the EU4Monitoring Drugs (EU4MD) project in Amman, Jordan for law enforcement officers from Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco and Palestine on darknet drug-related investigations, the adviser from the Italian State Police added.
EUPOL COPPS has also produced a compact information booklet with the Palestinian Civil Police aimed at vulnerable groups, including students, highlighting online risks.
