The OSCE Mission to Serbia, in close partnership with the Ministry of the Interior (MoI) on 6 and 7 November organised a training course for building police capacities in cyber forensics and investigating cybercrime.
The course was the first in a series of four which will take place across Serbia by April 2019, with the aim to establish a countrywide network of 60 cyber forensics investigators.
Experts from the MoI’s Department for Suppression of Hi-Tech Crime, who conducted the training with the OSCE’s support, formed a mobile team of trainers that will travel and spread its expertise in this domain among police officers countrywide.
To support them in this endeavour, the OSCE Mission to Serbia donated ten laptops and one projector to the mobile training team.
This activity is a part of the OSCE Mission to Serbia’s project “Strengthening Serbian Authorities in the Fight against Organized and Transnational Crime”. It also complements activities in the second stage of the regional project “Capacity Building for Criminal Justice Practitioners Combating Cybercrime and Cyber-enabled Crime in South-Eastern Europe”, implemented by the Serbian MoI and the OSCE Transnational Threats Department’s Strategic Police Matters Unit, with the assistance of the OSCE Mission to Serbia.
