Summary

The Presence, in close co-operation with the General Directorate of Border and Migration Police and the EU Police Assistance Mission of the European Commission to Albania (PAMECA IV), conducted a needs assessment of the Albanian green border (the space between two official border crossing points) on 12 to 22 September. The assessment team, composed of Albanian and international experts, as well as the Presence and PAMECA IV border advisors, visited two out of five pre-selected sites. Meetings were held with local and regional police officials, as well as their Greek counterparts, for sharing good practices and resources from border police on both sides to improve the fight against cross-border crime and other illegal activities. A report will be drafted and presented to the Albanian authorities; preliminary findings identify a lack of equipment and staff.
