2nd Phase of Police Cooperation in Albania

Sweden mandate in Albania

The current police cooperation with Albania was completed by March 2015 and the Government of Albania (GoA), through the Minister of Interior (MoI) has requested further support. ISSAT has designed the existing cooperation programme and conducted it's review in 2013. Both exercises have been conducted in an effective and professional way, therefore Sweden requested ISSAT expertise in the design for a 2nd phase of cooperation between Sweden and Albania in the police area. The 2nd phase is supposed to consolidate the current phase achievements in the Community Policing area, and if necessary and in response to the  GoA priorities expand into other police cooperation areas. The current leadership of the MoI has embarked into an ambitious program to increase safety levels and public order in the country and to reform the police service towards higher levels of effectiveness and professionalism. A new cooperation program phase is thus desired to bring the Swedish assistance in line with the new reform needs and the ambitions of the GoA in the field of justice and security. ISSAT was mandated with the design of this 2nd phase.

The programme “Strengthening Community Policing in Albania", phase II, 2017-2020 (SCPA) started on 4th of January 2017 and will run for 4 years until December 2020.
