On 23 March 2012, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), in co-operation with the Croatian Ministry of Interior, presented the Training Against Hate Crimes for Law Enforcement (TAHCLE) programme to law enforcement officers in Zagreb.
TAHCLE is the revised successor of the ODIHR Law Enforcement Officer Programme (LEOP) that was launched in 2005. LEOP has already been successfully implemented in Croatia.
The overall objective of the new TAHCLE programme is to improve police skills in recognizing, understanding and investigating hate crimes. It represents a critical step forward in ODIHR’s work to provide technical support and assistance to OSCE participating States to implement their political commitments in the area of preventing and responding to manifestations of hate and intolerance.
