For a number of years the OSCE Mission in Kosovo (OSCE Mission) through its Department for Security and Public Safety (DSPS) continues to proactively contribute to the development of the security and public safety sector in Kosovo. To ensure sustainable progress of the Kosovo Police (KP), Kosovo Agency on Forensics (KAF) and Police Inspectorate of Kosovo (PIK), the Police Development and Monitoring Section (PDMS) will continue to provide support to these institutions through the implementation of activities envisaged in the Kosovo Police Strategic Development Plan 2016-2020, Kosovo Police Human Resources Strategy 2016-2020, KAF Development Strategy 2016-2020, and Police Inspectorate Strategy 2019-2022. The capacity building support will be, targeted at developing human resources management capacities of these institutions and be delivered through tailored specialized training courses.
In line with both the mandated OSCE Mission’s priorities for 2019 and the requested needs of the beneficiaries, the PDMS will assist Kosovo Police and the Kosovo Agency on Forensics in their efforts to build operational and scientific skills to perform credible and professional forensic services. Forensic-related activities for the staff of both the KAF and Kosovo Police are based on their respective identified training needs and recommendations provided by the OSCE Mission during 2018.
The objective of this activity is to improve the capacity of participants from Kosovo Police, PIK in conducting internal inspection , and will consist of a variety of practices, group discussions/debriefings and exercises related to analysis of data samples.

Furthermore, the OSCE Mission will provide specialized training on investigative interviewing for police inspectors. These training activities were identified during the training needs assessment conducted by the beneficiaries in 2018. Furthermore, the support on these areas will assist the PIK and Kosovo Police in their efforts to prevent and combat corruption; a risk which was identified by several external partners.
