Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?

Through this funding opportunity, PAS Mumbai seeks to provide a series of workshops in states across western India (states of Maharashtra, Madya Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat, and Chhattisgarh) that will act as platforms for law enforcement and local governments to discuss best practices on fighting TIP and to learn from subject matter experts. These experts (who could be from fields such as academia, civil society, or law enforcement) will share their perspectives on current legislation addressing TIP crimes, ideas on how to implement these laws, and best practices for community engagement to promote reporting of TIP crimes. At each workshop, the grantee will convene 20 to 25 stakeholders in anti-TIP discussions, including government officials, police, and judges. The workshops will encourage law enforcement and local governments to brainstorm strategies to engage with high-risk communities on awareness of anti-TIP laws and reporting mechanisms to law enforcement.
