Summary/Abstract: This policy brief analyses the existing institutional and procedural landscape for exchange of operational information and police cooperation between Serbia and Kosovo, with a view to proposing a model for establishing more effective direct cooperation between the two police forces. Based on the analysis of the Serbian Government’s strategic approach to the transposition and implementation of the best EU standards and prac¬tices in the area of police cooperation and also taking into account agreements already reached and mechanisms put in place, a set of recommendations is proposed to Belgrade and Pristina, as well as to the EU institutions. These are as follows: (1) Effective mechanisms for police cooperation that are already in place (such as ILECUs) should be formalised and further enhanced. (2) An Agreement on Police Cooperation, modelled after similar arrangements in the region and focusing on fighting organised crime and human security issues, needs to be reached. (3) Police Contact Points should be established to facilitate police cooperation. (4) An independent oversight body needs to be established to ensure the implementation of this Agreement. (5) The EU should set the agenda and facilitate dialogue on police cooperation.
