Summary

On 13 September, the Kosovo Police launched its Serious and Organized Crime Threat Assessment (SOCTA) 2014-2015, which is a product of systematic analysis of law enforcement information on criminal activities and groups, designed to assist strategic decision-makers in the prioritisation of organized crime threats. This public version of strategic assessment comes as a result of the two-year project supported by the Mission and the Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) that focused on strengthening the capacities of Kosovo Police and Albanian State Police in drafting the SOCTA in accordance with Europol standards. During the press conference which gathered the general director and senior police representatives, officials of the Mission and a large media presence, it was noted that all relevant local agencies were involved in the production of this important assessment, which is expected to largely assist in the prevention of serious and organized crimes. Having finalized their individual assessments, as part of this project, a joint SOCTA among Kosovo Police and Albanian State Police, as a first step towards identifying common threats and their impact to the regional security and public safety, is also expected to be published soon.
