The top managers of the Ukrainian police IT Department took part in a five-day study visit to Romania on 6-10 March, financed by the EU Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM). The purpose of the visit was to see how IT capabilities could be used for criminal and intelligence analysis.
EUAM is supporting the National Police of Ukraine in the development of an Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) approach, which is aimed at modernising investigations of criminal activity in Ukraine.
“Romania was chosen as the destination for the study trip because 12 years ago, Romania was in a very similar situation to Ukraine in terms of a lack of Intelligence-Led Policing and criminal analysis capabilities,” said Fabian Loewenberg, EUAM Head of Rule of Law Component. “The way in which Romania has adopted current best practices serves as a very good example for Ukraine.”
The study trip complements other assistance that EUAM has offered the National Police of Ukraine, particularly in cooperation with the Romanian police. EUAM and the Romanian Police are working together with their Ukrainian colleagues to develop a long-term strategy in ILP.
The EUAM is a non-executive mission of the European Union. It aims to assist the Ukrainian authorities in the sustainable reform of the civilian security sector through strategic advice and hands-on support for specific reform measures based on EU standards and international principles of good governance and human rights.
