From 12 to 14 July, the OSCE Mission to Serbia, together with the Ministry of Interior (MoI) organised a workshop on preventing terrorism and violent extremism for members of the MoI’s Service for Combating Terrorism and Extremism in Vršac.
The purpose of the workshop was to improve police capacities to prevent terrorism and violent extremism and to train them on working with local communities to detect early signs of radicalization. The workshop was conducted by two experts from the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. A total of twenty participants participated in the workshop, which resulted in the drafting of a curriculum for training additional community police officers. This activity is part of the Mission’s wider efforts to enhance police capacity to combat transnational, organised and serious crime.
