With the development assistance of Slovenia, Montenegro is building a system of helicopter police operations and helicopter emergency medical services, and enhancing the role of the Ministry of the Interior in this system.
Expertise of Flight Police Unit and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia is primarily used to assist Montenegrin Interdepartmental Working Group in establishing expert interdepartmental dialogue. Interdepartmental Working Group discussed Slovenian experience for steps of Montenegrin system development between 11 and 12 March 2020 in Podgorica.
It consulted on the preparation of a strategic document to guide the development of a new system of public services provided by helicopter operations of the Ministry of Interior, particularly relevant to the safety, health and lives of residents and visitors of Montenegro. Its importance and importance of enhancing efficiency of public administrations was emphasised also by the Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia to Montenegro Gregor Presker who opened the working gathering together with Program Director Andreja Dolničar Jeraj. Slovenian representatives also held a working meeting on specifics of helicopter police operations planning on 13 March 2020 at the Police Administration of Montenegro.
The project is part of programme activities of the Slovenia’s Development Cooperation Programme financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia and carried out together with the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Health and Police of the Republic of Slovenia.
