Criminal Justice Development


The Criminal Justice Development Program encompasses the work for which APLE Cambodia is best known, and is founded on the belief that strengthening government institutions relevant to the criminal justice system is the highest priority in achieving long-term sustainable change. Through training and discussion sessions, high-level technical meetings, long-term mentorship, assistance in investigations and other innovative approaches to build capacities, the program targets national law enforcement agencies and other judicial protection mechanisms to increase adherence to national and international standards in cases of sexual abuse and exploitation of children and the use of child-friendly procedures throughout the whole criminal justice process.

Institutions currently targeted by the Criminal Justice Development activities are the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation, the National Committee for Counter-Trafficking (including related-ministries, UN agencies and NGOs working on child protection), the Departments of Criminal Affairs and Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection from the Cambodian National Police.
