Benešov police officers learned more about domestic violence

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, there was a training course for the Benešov Municipal Police.

We focused on the psychological and legal aspects of the contact with the victims of domestic violence. We talked in particular about how to work with a traumatized person in the context of domestic violence, what are the rights of victims of crimes or the possibilities of victim compensation. We also mentioned the Recognition Institute - although the city police do not have this tool, it is important that they know about the disclosure and have accurate information about its function.

Police officers are often among the first experts to encounter the victim of violence (so-called first contact specialists) and it is therefore very important that they are able to communicate sensitively with the victim and to know what the specifics of the situation are.
