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.
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.
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.
This report was produced by the Counter Terrorism and Police Unit of the OSCE Office in Tajikistan and reflects the results of the focus groups research organised with the aim to understand the role of the police and the perception of the police within the community.
