Summary

On 13 November the Mission to Skopje organized a training course for a police K-9 (dog) unit, which was held at the Police Training Centre in Idrizovo, Skopje. The training course was held as part of a project aimed at providing support to the decentralization of K-9 Unit activities within the country, to include the establishment of sub-units at border crossing points. 

This Mission-supported pilot project, which was implemented in co-operation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA), the OSCE Mission to Serbia, US Export Control and Border Security (EXBS) and FRONTEX, aimed to further enhance the skills of police officers in their efforts to fight transnational threats and organized crime with a special focus on human trafficking, and drug and weapon smuggling.
