KHPT has been organising sensitisation programmes for Judiciary across Karnataka in partnership with National Law School of India University and Karnataka Judicial Academy from 2012 to 2015. The programme, initiated under the Samvedana project, sensitises Judicial Officers on the issues faced by women in sex work, the critical role of the Judiciary in mitigating the violence and addressing violation of their human rights and the underlying interface between violence in sex work and HIV.
Sensitisation has brought significant changes in the attitude towards marginalised population among judges and police. The judiciary initiated police training has been a new trend. The District Legal Services Authority has started police trainings and is encouraging the coming together of law enforcing agencies for a common goal. Integration of a training module into the curriculum of induction training by The Karnataka Judicial Academy has integrated the training module into the curriculum for induction training.
The National Legal Services Authority has recommended the replication of the programme across all states in India. Zimbabwe has shown keen interest in replicating the same in their country and sought support from the Karnataka State police and Karnataka Judicial Academy.
