The Serbian police developed a system for more efficient patrol management with Slovenian development assistance. The system has been introduced and is already being used successfully in the field of six police administrations: Sremska Mitrovica, Vranje, Bor, Pirot, Požarevac in Zaječar. The system will now be extended also to the other administrations.
For this purpose, from 27 June to 1 July 2022, interactive workshops will be held in Serbia for representatives of the organizational units of the police administrations of Užice, Šabac, Novi Pazar and Pančevo, which are next in line to join the system. At the workshops, the participants will be introduced to the functioning of the system for patrol management. Moreover, they will be able to exchange information with Serbian and Slovenian colleagues who have been already using the system and know it well.
The changes introduced by the Serbian police aim to improve the responsiveness of police patrols so they respond to the needs of the people, improve the coordination of police work in the field, the protection of police officers in the performance of their policing duties, and ensure the protection of law and order, also in the context of migration. Along the way, the Serbian police strive to make changes in line with EU criteria and standards. In doing so, they also rely on the continued support of the Republic of Slovenia.
The project is part of the program activities of international development cooperation, financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior and the Police of the Republic of Slovenia.
