New and broadened cooperation between the Hellenic Police and The Smile of the Child
On Tuesday, the 21st of January 2020 a new updated Memorandum of Cooperation was signed at the premises of the Hellenic Ministry of Citizens’ Protection between the Minister of Citizens’ Protection and the President of the Board of Directors of “The Smile of the Child”, Mr. Costas Yannopoulos.
The Hellenic Police and “The Smile of the Child” have been closely working together for many years on issues related to child abuse and neglect, financial and sexual exploitation of minors as well as child disappearances. Their cooperation is now extended to the disappearances of adults, aged from 18 to 65 years old.
In this way, “The Smile of the Child” becomes a critical partner of the Hellenic Police in its effort to address the ever-growing needs for support and care to vulnerable groups and individuals.
