The Regional Cooperation and Integrity Building in the Western Balkans Programme (PCIB) focuses on two areas:
In order to strengthen police cooperation in the Western Balkan region, DCAF supports the implementation of the Police Cooperation Convention for Southeast Europe, assists in capacity building to fight serious and organised crime in the Western Balkans, and works to promote border police cooperation between States.
Using expertise gained from the Police Integrity Building Programme, DCAF works to help beneficiary countries address and reform all aspects of integrity within their law enforcement agencies, including legislative provisions, integrity planning, capacity building for staff and trainers, and integrity and gender training management. PCIB aims to promote democratic accountability and integrity within the police forces of its partners through this focus on integrity.
