The current cooperation between the police and other actors in the criminal justice chain is to be analyzed in order to improve it, for example through exchange and cooperation meetings or the drafting of standard operating procedures. Furthermore, the internal police complaint mechanism against police misconduct is to be strengthened through digitization and efficient handling of complaints.
