The “Balkan route”, as bridge between the East and the West, is still one of the favourite highways for the profitable illegal deals managed by the international organised crime, despite enormous efforts spent by Police Forces and Judiciaries bodies and taking into account the number of good and concrete results achieved in the fight against organised crime. Therefore it is essential to enhance cross-border cooperation, developing a real time exchange of information system, to ensure effective cooperation and coordination between Judiciary and Police authorities.

In that contest - as part of the macro-regional strategy for combating trans-national criminal organisations in the Balkans, promoted and funded by the European Union - the Multibeneficiary EU Project IPA 2013 Western Balkans “Fight against organised crime: International Cooperation in Criminal Justice ”, in cooperation and coordination with Eulex/Kosovo*, planned and held from 25 to 29 April 2016, a study visit for Police Officers from Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo* to a comparable tri-lateral Police Cooperation Centre (Austria, Italy, Slovenia) located in Tarvisio-Thorl Maglern to support the establishment of the upcoming tri-lateral Police Cooperation Centre in Plav (Montenegro) among Montenegro, Albania and Kosovo.
