Summary

Following previous efforts to support the fight against serious and organized crime, the Presence in Albania, in co-operation with the State Police, started an eight-day tailored training course for nine members of the police special forces surveillance unit on 11 November. The training programme is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management in the United Kingdom and is being delivered with the support of three international experts.

These experts have worked with the surveillance unit from the very beginning of this type of training, to ensure continuity and sustainability. The training includes covert camouflage deployment and field craft, alternative methods of entry and re-evaluation, as well as foot, mobile and anti/counter surveillance techniques. The aim of the training is to equip the unit with additional strengths and capabilities that may be used during intelligence gathering operations in the fight against serious organized crime and terrorism.
