Countering serious and organized crime remains a high priority for Albania and OSCE participating States. An important part of the mandate of the OSCE Presence in Albania (hereinafter “the Presence”) is to assist Albanian law enforcement agencies in coordination with other international actors in this field. Throughout 2020, the Presence will continue to provide impartial advice and expertise as well as cross-programmatic assistance to Albanian police agencies and regional interlocutors in the field of serious and organized crime.
Crime analysis is a systematic process which aims to provide timely information about trends and patterns in crime. Law enforcers use the resultant information in many areas such as to solve crime, apprehend offenders and in planning for police resources. The police employs different analytical techniques in this process. Recent gap analysis conducted by the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) expert within Border and Migration Police Department of Albania State Police indicated the need for further efforts in increasing quality of analytical work. Additionally, at the meeting of the Presence’s Security Co-operation Department (SCD) with a Deputy Minister of Interior, the Ministry expressed a request for support in the area of criminal analysis.
In this framework, the Presence will support a 4-day course on Crime Analysis for Albanian State Police that will present the concepts, and techniques of crime analysis. The training is intended for 20 new analysts, officers or executives charged with developing crime analysis programs.
The training should enable the participating analysts to identify possible trends, relationships or connections between different crimes in different places, and use the analysis to support law enforcement activities by studying criminal data. As a result of the training, trained analysts will be able to generate a diverse range of analytical products such as analytical reports; threat assessments for regions or specific crimes; risk assessments for a particular event; bulletins or monthly reports.
