Police undergo further training to fight organised crime more efficiently

The fourth cycle of the "Partnership for Education" project for training police officers and developing international cooperation in a bid to make the fight against people trafficking and drug smuggling more efficient, was formally opened at the Zagreb-based Police Academy on Monday.

The project covers law enforcement officers from Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and Albania as well as experts from Croatia, Great Britain, Austria, France, Italy and the USA.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Croatian Interior Minister Vlaho Orepic spoke about the challenges stemming from organised crime and the ongoing migration crisis.

In attendance at the ceremony were the Italian and U.S. Ambassadors to Zagreb, Adrian Chiodi Cianfarani and Juliete Valls Noyes respectively, who called for more sophisticated action against organised crime and for a permanent dialogue and exchange of information.
