From 28-30 September in Bar and Podgorica, the Mission supported the MoI in developing the Police Strategy 2016-2020 and Action Plan 2016/2017, which were adopted by the Government of Montenegro in December 2015. It was a joint workshop with Geneva’s Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces-DCAF on Training Management & Planning.
Defining clear, strategic objectives will demonstrate a police commitment to adopting a firmer grip on international, national and local threats and demonstrate its firm commitments in adjusting to international policing standards and the best police practices. With the support of the OSCE Secretariat`s Gender Team, the Mission will ensure that the gender aspect is properly addressed in the strategic document. These policy papers were sent by MoI to the European Commission for an additional expert opinion and comments prior to Government discussion and adoption in the fourth quarter of the year.
