Summary

To help Serbia build its capacities in identifying and preventing violent extremism and radicalization leading to terrorism (VERLT), on 16-17 April, the Mission, together with the MoI, organized the last of four training sessions28 for MoI staff on the prevention of violent extremism and terrorism in Serbia.

A total of 70 participants, including five women, learned how community policing can effectively prevent unwanted events from escalating, and improve general safety of the community. Seven trainers from the MoI’s Uniformed Police and the Service for Countering Terrorism and Extremism, who participated in the Mission’s 2017 train-the-trainers courses on VERLT, shared their knowledge and experience on early identification and prevention.
