OSCE conducted training seminars on document security in Almaty
The third stage of an OSCE-supported train-the-trainer course on detecting forged travel documents and identification techniques for 20 border service officers concluded on 8 November 2019 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the OSCE Programme Office in Nur-Sultan informs.
The OSCE Programme Office in Nur-Sultan organized the five-day course in co-operation with the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Programme of the United States Embassy in Nur-Sultan, the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Centre for Combating Illicit Trafficking of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances and their Precursors (CARICC), and the Border Guard Service under the National Security Committee. The training course was supported by the OSCE Transnational Threats Department’s Travel Document Security Programme.
The experts from the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior developed a tailor-made programme for Kazakh officers of the National Security Committee’s Border Service to learn about personalization and forgery techniques, laminate safeguards in passport production, diffractive optically variable image devices, the theory of light and colour, biometrics in travel documents and passenger assessment techniques. They presented samples of real and forged travel documents for the participants to analyze and assess their authenticity.
During the exercises, the participants practiced the methods of detecting a forged or counterfeit passport using various the identification techniques, risk profiling, and picture-to-picture comparison methods.
The participants were presented with illuminated magnifiers and USB-digital microscopes allowing them to apply the acquired skills.
The seminar is a follow-up to two previous courses on document security held in Almaty earlier this year.
