Pristina (Kosovo)


In recent years, the Department for Security and Public Safety (DSPS) of the OSCE Mission in Kosovo (OMiK) has been proactively participating in the development of the security and public safety sector in Kosovo. In order to facilitate the sustainability of progress made by the Kosovo Police (KP) and the Kosovo Agency on Forensic (KAF) the DSPS Police Development and Monitoring Section (PDMS) will continue to support the implementation of activities envisioned in the KP Strategic Development Plan 2016-2020 and the KP Human Resources Strategy 2016-2020, KAF Development Strategy 2016-2020, and the Police Inspectorate of Kosovo Strategy 2014-2018. The beneficiaries of this project will have the possibility to improve capacities and their expertise through different trainings and activities which will be based on best practices of European countries. The activities planned in this project will focus on areas related to gender mainstreamed human resource policies within the KP; improved skills and accredited practices and procedures within the KAF; greater understanding of the recording, investigation and prosecution of potential hate crimes by law enforcement entities; further development of the KP distance learning capacities; and improvement of co-operation at the international level by the KP.
