Summary

From 13 to 17 March, the Mission delivered an operational commanders training to 14 supervising police women – members of the Association of Kosovo Police Women – to further assist in developing their skills and competencies for management and leadership positions. Following the provision of last year’s training on developing management and leadership skills of police women, this training module focused further on the importance of women in operational commanders’ positions, addressing potential prejudices, perceptions and intolerance toward women in command, and exploration of techniques to overcome barriers during daily work. In addition, senior police women learned about principles of decision-making models in operational commanders’ positions, how to deal with media, importance of building trust with local communities, and drafting operational plans for handling critical incidents. Furthermore, they also had an opportunity to practice on scenario-based exercises which complemented every theoretical topic lectured in the class.
