picture of two girls, victims of hostage takingDue to private and / or professional circumstances, or if you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time, you may become a victim of this type of crime.

If you are aware of the danger, you can also prevent or at least reduce it with appropriate preventive measures.

However, if you do become a victim of this type of crime, doing the right thing can increase the chances of the situation being resolved as quickly and safely as possible.

In the brochure prepared by the European Network of Experts (EuNAT), we publish a number of preventive advice and other useful information. EuNAT is a network of experienced law enforcement professionals from across Europe, offering mechanisms to establish immediate international cooperation in response to threats such as kidnapping, hostage situations or extortion in which human lives are at risk.
