Summary

This report has been prepared by the SPMU, in consultation and co-operation with OSCE field operations and other executive structures. In a first step, the SPMU has taken stock of the police-related activities that OSCE field operations, Institutions and thematic units have undertaken since 1998.

Following an introductory chapter that provides a brief overview of the evolution of OSCE’s police-related activities during the last decade, Chapter III provides a stock-taking of these activities, focusing on three thematic areas of policing: Police Development and Reform, Community Policing, and the Fight against Organised Crime. Detailed statistical data on various police-related activities and the available human and financial resources, on which a number of stock-taking graphics are based, are provided in the Appendices.

Chapter IV provides an assessment of police-related activities in the three thematic areas of policing. The information in the chapter was gathered during a three-week online forum, held between 1–19 February 2010, to which all executive structures had been invited to participate.

In summarizing the stock-taking chapter and the assessment chapter, Chapter V provides an overview of the assessment, the value added of the OSCE and the Organisation’s lessons learned in implementing police-related activities.

Drawing some cogent conclusions from the assessment overview, Chapter VI provides forward-looking perspectives and a number of strategic recommendations with respect to OSCE’s police-related activities in the future.
