PODGORICA, 16 July: In order to enhance interoperability of MNE data and support their cooperation with EUROPOL, Interpol and SIRENE, EURoL II has rather successfully organised a preliminary mission of Mr Pecoraro, with the aim to analyse the national infrastructure and conditions within the Police Division for International Police Cooperation and to outline measures for improvement in developing databases and information exchange mechanisms at the country’s level. The international police cooperation is an important mechanism of support to organised crime and corruption investigations which is becoming important more than ever. One of the key preconditions for that cooperation from the national perspective is the existence of developed databases and information exchange mechanisms
The mission has been perceived as highly useful by the beneficiaries. Thus, EURol II will, in cooperation with Mr Pecoraro, organise the 2nd mission which will focus on aspects which are for the time being crucial for police cooperation – IT instruments for data exchange. Through this mission, expert will support Montenegrin Police Division for International Police Cooperation to plan and set up the measures needed to improve the scope and quality of international cooperation. Conditions for ARO and establishing PNR in Italy were will be discussed and EU standards/best practices presented and exchanged, as in near future will be a necessity for the Montenegrin counterparts. Furthermore, ARIANNA software – International Police Cooperation case management system and SDI (Sistema D’Investigazione – Investigative System) of Italian Police Forces have been presented, and comparative analysis conducted to explore possibilities for improving the national IT support infrastructure and improve the share of data.
