A group of leading representatives of organizational units of Serbian police administrations visited Slovenia from 16 to 22 May 2022. The representatives participate in the strengthening of their activities in the field of patrol management within the framework of the international development assistance of the Republic of Slovenia.
The visit was of a working nature and offered the Serbian participants the opportunity to get acquainted with the work of patrols of all police powers and exchange experiences with Slovenian colleagues. The participants were welcomed in the units in the field of the police administrations of Novo mesto, Ljubljana, Koper and Motorway Police.
Additionally, the participants had an opportunity to participate in hands-on interactive workshops. The advanced workshops facilitated the transfer of knowledge of the use of the patrol management system and its extensions to the areas of police administrations in Serbia that are just joining the system.
The participants of the training highlighted the main advantages of more efficient patrol management: shorter response time, deployment of adequately equipped patrols to interventions, deployment of a sufficient number of patrols to individual interventions, and easier and more coordinated cooperation between patrols belonging territorially to different police administrations. They agreed and reaffirmed that this ensures greater security for police officers in the field and better and faster service to citizens. They underscored the need to extend the patrol management system to as many police administrations as possible in Serbia and confirmed that they would spread their knowledge and experience not only among colleagues within their police administrations, but also beyond them.
The visit showed once again that the Serbian police is committed to working more efficiently in the field, also in line with EU standards, and that they can count on Slovenia’s friendly assistance along the way.
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.
