As Part of an Endeavor to Consolidate Protection for People with Disabilities: QADER Conducts Training on Integrating Disability Issues into Police Field Programs
Jericho- QADER for Community Development carried out a series of trainings on issues related to people with disabilities at Palestine College for Police Science. The training, which took place throughout the month of may, had participation from 34 police officers from different units (the Child and Family Protection Unit, the Investigation Unit, and the Gender Unit).
This training aimed to enhance the concepts and working practices of the police sector on disability issues. In addition, the training sought to include disability-related concepts in planning, implementing and monitoring interventions in their programmes, especially in the field, in order to provide protection from violence for people with disabilities, especially children and women.
The training interventions also focused on enhancing the trainees' skills in intervening to protect women and children, who are often the victims of violence. It also focused on raising awareness about disability and its forms and behavioral patterns, as well as the human rights of people with disabilities at local and international levels, including international agreements and local laws related to the rights of people with disabilities.
