          • Year: 2009
          • Police 2000-2008

          • The police in Serbia has come a long way since 2001 and new democratic foun-dations have been laid upon which the police can fulfil their duty to serve the country’s citizens. There have been four crucial changes.

        •  

          First, there is greater cooperation with the international community. Second, has been the ‘return of brainpower instead of force.’ In other words there is more capacity within the criminal investigation police compared to the Milošević period. Third, police identity hasbeen redefined from that of an instrument of coercion to one which serves the public. Finally, there is a legal and strategic framework for regulating police work. However, thekey question remains whether these reforms are enough to ensure that the police no longer hinder broader processes of democratisation.
