This book is about the nature of police capacity-building and its specific role in support of the process of reform in police organizations in transition states, particularly those in a post-conflict period.
CoE and OSCE representatives visited Serbia in April 2002. They were tasked to produce a joint report with recommendations and an implementation strategy to improve police internal and external accountability.
The main objectives of this report are to highlight areas where the police reform process in Serbia requires impetus and to be constructive by providing possible solutions to issues that have the potential to undermine the process.
The report provides concrete recommendations for the Ministry of Interior, Police Administration, other government institutions, as well as for the international community, which are meant to form the basis for future constructive discussions.
The goal of the research, conducted by TNS Medium Gallup for the OSCE Mission to Serbia, is to investigate the attitudes of citizens about personal safety, problems at the local and the national level, their perception of institutions and of the reform of the police.
