Law students from Chulalongkorn University recently had an eye-opening experience as they visited the Center of Children, Women, and Families Protection and Anti-Human Trafficking and Fisheries (CWP) at the Royal Thai Police. The goal was to learn about the important work being done to combat human trafficking.
On May 29, 2023, the faculty members of the “Special LawLAB” program arrived at the Royal Thai Police Headquarters for a summary lecture on various aspects related to human trafficking. They explored the situation in Thailand, the laws in place, the efforts being made to enforce those laws, and the international cooperation involved in combating human trafficking. Additionally, they gained insights into the structure, authority, and responsibilities of the CWP and its special operation units within the Royal Thai Police.
After the lecture, the students had the opportunity to visit the Thailand Internet Crimes Against Children (TICAC) and the Tactical Anti-Trafficking in Persons (TATIP) Center. Guided by knowledgeable speakers, they learned about the tools used to investigate and interrogate cases involving child and youth sexual exploitation on the internet. They also gained awareness about the methods used by perpetrators to exploit sensitive information.
The highlight of the visit was the chance to explore the prototype investigation room specifically designed for child and youth-related cases. The students were deeply interested in this aspect, and it left a lasting impression on them.
The Royal Thai Police’s Special Operation Unit garnered significant attention from the participating students, who were inspired by the unit’s dedication and commitment to protecting vulnerable individuals and combating human trafficking.
This collaboration between the Royal Thai Police and Chulalongkorn University marks an important step in the fight against human trafficking. The students’ visit provided them with valuable knowledge and insights, empowering them to contribute to a safer and more just society.
