Brief Description


In 2006, an order issued by the chief of the Republic of Armenia Police created a working group headed by the deputy chief of police to enforce in a timely and proper manner the National Programme, specifically the measures the programme calls for to prevent violence against women and domestic violence. To accomplish this, the police information centre keeps a separate record of crimes committed against women, and a separate programme is being developed. Seminars are also slated for those law-enforcement officials who work directly with the public.
