Video: Counter-terrorism training on battlefield evidence collection

After a terrorist attack occurs, it is crucial to collect and analyse any information and material left at the scene. This can include mobile phones, photos, fingerprints and DNA. This information is known as ‘battlefield evidence’ and can help prevent similar attacks in the future. 

NATO is teaching basic evidence collection skills to police and military personnel from partner countries in Africa, in the Gulf and in the Middle East to give the trainees the basic tools to fight terrorism. 

The training was organised by the NATO Stability Policing Centre of Excellence in Vicenza, Italy and was funded by the Bureau of Counterterrorism of the US Department of State. Participants came from NATO partner countries Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan and Tunisia.
