The OSCE Mission to Skopje is supporting the Ministry of Interior in strengthening its decentralized training system, through a jointly-organized roundtable discussion on a newly-adopted training strategy for Ministry employees.
The two-day roundtable, starting on 21 May 2012, focuses on how the training strategy affects the position of the Training Centre with regard to continuous education of Interior Ministry staff, as well as the status of the Police Advisors for Continuous Training (Training Co-ordinators), who work at a regional level throughout the country’s eight police regions.
The Head of the OSCE Mission’s Police Development Department Viacheslav Vorobiev said that a well-developed centralized and decentralized training system is a key requirement for a modern police service in line with citizens’ expectations.
“In this respect, we welcome the newly adopted training strategy as an important document that will enhance the Ministry’s capacity to train existing and new police officers to a high professional standard,” he added.
The Head of the Police Training Centre Goce Bacanov, said: “The document we presented to the employees of the Ministry of Interior, as well as to the broader public, is a significant tool that will unify the efforts of all concerned to build a functioning, contemporary and effective training system for all the employees of the Ministry.”
The event falls under the Mission’s activities dedicated to strengthening the human resources management system within the Ministry of Interior and improving its police training capacities.
