A field analyses in Serbia was successfully conducted from 16 to 21 September 2019 on the patrolling and management of patrols, in order to find ways for improved response of the police to the people’s needs, including in the case of migrations. Representatives of the Slovenian police from different areas of responsibility were working with their Serbian counterparts in different organizational units to determine what the current situation is in the field and what their needs are, while exchanging professional experience. The field analysis was carried out at the border police station Šid, organizational units of the Sremska Mitrovica Police Directorate, border police stations Rujan and Preševo, the Regional Border Police Centre against the Republic of Northern Macedonia, and traffic and general police stations at the Vranje Police Directorate. Representatives from the Analytics, Telecommunications and Information Technology Sector and representatives from the Belgrade MoI administration were also included in the implementation of the field analysis.
The findings will be used in the development of ICT patrol management equipment and further activities to enhance patrol management capabilities, with the next study visit by representatives of the Ministry of the Interior and the Police of the Republic of Serbia in Slovenia from 16 to 19 October 2019, through which, by observing the work and management of patrols, they will get to know the organization and approaches which are used in the EU, and learn through examples how ICT is used. The lessons learned will help with Serbia’s reform processes, which are a prerequisite for EU accession.
The project is part of program activities carried out in cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior / Police of the Republic of Slovenia and CVS Mobile, and is financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia from funds for international development cooperation.
