In recent years, the Department for Security and Public Safety (DSPS) of the OSCE Mission in Kosovo (OMiK) has been proactively participating in the development of security and public safety sector initiatives in Kosovo. The main emphasis of this work was to strengthen sustainability, improve professional standards and introduce internationally recognised best practices for Kosovo law enforcement agencies. In the past year, the DSPS has supported activities that are designed to assist with enhancing the capacity and to ensure the sustainability of security agencies that are tasked with providing security to all communities within Kosovo
The beneficiaries of this project will have the possibility to improve capacities and their expertise through different trainings, based on best practices of European countries, and participation in regional conferences to exchange their expertise related to forensic scientists, DNA data etc.
The PDMS will assist the growth of the capacities of the beneficiaries in relate to thin layer chromatography in the Department of Forensic Chemistry and Biology in the KAF related to analysis of narcotic samples which are based on the results of drug homogeneity studies. These guidelines will concentrate on practical homogenisation of material used in the preferred sampling process. In order to measure the impact of these activities, and the possibilities of reducing human rights violations, the PDMS will continue to proactively monitor human rights compliance and quality assurance of the procedure deployed in conducting analysis within the KAF.
This project will build upon the achieved progress and is designed to assist the security sector agencies in enhancing their regional co-operation with neighbouring countries in target areas which are related to their mandated tasks. It will incorporate activities designed to improving participation of women and non-majority communities; further develop the management of human resources skills; further enhance understanding the capacity to combat hate crimes; and assist in the development of distance training modalities for the security sector
In order to ensure the programmatic objective to develop a transparent, gender-sensitive and accountable resource management and quality assurance system for the Kosovo Police (KP), the Kosovo Agency on Forensic (KAF) and the Kosovo Academy for Public Safety (KAPS), from 20 to 24 November five (5) representatives of KAF complete a total of five (5) days modular training on Training on Colour analysis with thin layer chromatography, colour analysis with the usage of Raman spectroscopy. This practical oriented training programme will provide KAF members with the skills necessary to legally provide expertise on cases which involve the use of thin layer chromatography (TLC) separation technique for mixtures of non-volatile organic molecules.
The objective of this activity, which will be delivered by an international expert hired by OMIK, is to provide advanced training which will assist the KAF in further developing the capacity and the skills of the staff and scientist in the Department of Forensic Chemistry and Biology in the KAF.
Topics to be covered during the training include:
The main objective of the project is to develop a transparent, gender – sensitive and accountable resource management and quality assurance system for the Kosovo Police (KP), the Kosovo Agency on Forensic (KAF) and the Kosovo Academy for Public Safety (KAPS).
The project directly relates to the Mission’s Programme Objective which strives to achieve that Kosovo Police (KP) Kosovo Agency on Forensics (KAF) and the Kosovo Academy for Public Safety (KAPS) develop transparent, gender-sensitive and accountable resource management systems. To accomplish aforementioned objective OMIK PDMS has already developed and provided number of training with the aim to enhance professional level of skills posed by KP.
The objective of this activity is to provide advanced training which will assist the scientist in the Chemistry Department of KAF to further develop their capacity and skills related to TLC.
