Border Police

Strengthening the operational capacities of the Border Police in the fight against trafficking

The FICB PS project provides direct advisory support to the Ministry of Interior, specifically to the Border Police to increase their capacities for effective and efficient fight against different types of cross-border crime, especially: fight against illegal trafficking in drugs, smuggling in human beings, forging documents and smuggling of motor vehicles, efficient border patrolling to prevent illegal border crossing.

To enable the Border Police officers to detect and investigate such kinds of criminal behavior delivery of quality trainings by qualified trainers is considered a precondition. The curricula will put focus on profiling the persons dealing with this kind of criminal activities, risk management and risk analysis. A study visit to Border Police headquarters in one of the EU countries will enable representatives of the Border Police Sector to learn from best regional and EU practices.

This component of the project will propose new risk management concept for border police and detailed needs assessment regarding the number of police stations, optimal number of police officers and equipment.

The existence of corruption practices represents a major challenge to effective operational capacity of border management. Border Police is particularly exposed to corruption due their contact with trans-border criminals and traffickers. That is why the project’s Team of experts is undertaking a comprehensive analysis of the current anticorruption practice within the Border Police and estimates if it is in line with the overall MoI Anticorruption Strategy.

In frames of this project an analysis of the current cooperation between the Border Police and other organizational units within the MoI will be conducted, as the borderline is the tactical line for collaboration with customs, phytosanitary, veterinary and other agencies like the Reception Centre for Foreigners. A recommendation and methodology for efficient exchange of information with other law enforcement agencies involved in the integrated border management will be prepared.
