The main goals of the project refer to four strategic components:
- To strengthen the operational capacities of the Border Police in the fight against different types of cross-border crime, especially illegal trafficking;
- To develop the capacities of the Suppression of Organized and Serious Crime Department for secure and efficient handling of classified information and fight against organized crime, as well as for organized crime threat assessment;
- To enhance the capacities of the Police for fight against financial and cyber-crime;
- To develop skills of the Uniformed Police of General and Traffic Competencies for efficient and effective daily policing, as well as to develop anti-corruption standards within different police branches in the Ministry of Interior.
A significant element, incorporated in project objectives, is further implementation of the Community policing concept in the daily policing of all police branches, which leads to closer relation between the Police and the citizens and strengthening of the mutual trust.
The FICB PS project also includes extensive training curricula in line with the EU and international best practices and standards. During the implementation of the project one study visit to an EU country will be organized in order to provide practical knowledge for the MoI staff about the functioning of the appropriate/similar organizational units and services.
In a wider context, the project will support the reform process of the Ministry of Interior with approximation of the European standards through establishment of a police organization oriented towards affirmation of social values in function of the citizens, enabling improvement of the quality of living, protection of rights and providing peace and harmony among all citizens of the country.
The FICB PS project is implemented by Business & Strategies (B&S) Europe Consortium.
