Representatives of the Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau (KNAB) visited Danish National Police for training purposes to learn their experience in receiving and processing reports from the internal whistleblowing system. The visit was carried out in the scope of the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 programme “International Police Cooperation and Combating Crime” project “Support for the establishment of a whistle-blowing system in Latvia”.
KNAB representatives met with structural units of the Danish National Police responsible for internal audits and the received reports. During their visit, KNAB representatives gained an insight into the internal whistleblowing system of the police, its governing internal regulatory documents, as well as procedures and specifics for investigating such reports.
The exchange visit took place from 30 May to 1 June. The exchange of experience visit was carried out in the scope of the “Support for the establishment of a whistle-blowing system in Latvia” project, where KNAB receives European Economic Area grants from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway. The goal of the project is to promote public engagement in reporting corruption and other latent crimes, while simultaneously providing the public with a safe and convenient reporting channel, as well as improve the competence of KNAB in detecting corruptive criminal offences.
