Palestinian police officers conclude study trip to Croatia on accountability

Six Palestinian police officers concluded on Friday 30 September a study trip to Zagreb and discussed with their Croatian counterparts how to enhance accountability within various sections of the police.

During the trip, the attendees raised a number of topics such as the organization of the Croatian Ministry of Interior and Police, mandate and administration of the accountability departments, complaint mechanism, disciplinary violations and procedures, oversight and inspections. 

The second part of the visit involved the Police Academy in Zagreb where presentations on Code of Conduct and Code of Conduct training curriculum was delivered in addition to the Code of Conduct set for all governmental employees.

According to Rodolphe Mauget, EUPOL COPPS Head of Mission “this study trip is part of an important programme to further enhance the accountability of the Palestinian Civil Police for the benefit of all Palestinians. Through unremitting efforts towards more accountability, the Palestinian Civil Police is further improving its professionalism and the way it is perceived and trusted by the citizens.”   

The five-day visit by the six Palestinian Civil Police officers representing several administrations, was organized by EUPOL COPPS and in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)
