Today we were invited by the Belgian highway police of the Gent area to give a training on the EU legislation protecting animals during transport. The purpose of our police trainings is to teach police officers the requirements of the welfare-legislation so that they too can inspect livestock trucks passing through their region and sanction those in violation. Today 17 police officers were present. Two veterinarians from the FAVV and the head of Animal Welfare from the Ministry of Health also participated in the event. We have been invited to come back two more times to give the practical side of the training; when together we stop and inspect livestock trucks on the road. One police officer ordered 25 more of our training brochures to distribute to his colleagues in his regional department. We were very pleased with their motivation and interest and look forward to a continued collaboration.
