Steps toward closer cooperation with Europe: reinforcement of the capacity of Moldovan law enforcement authorities to cooperate with European Union partners effectively

Since 2008, the Polish police have implemented 10 training projects financed from resources of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, during which the Polish experience has been shared with the Moldovan party, support provided, good practices passed on and the Moldovan police assisted in training new personnel. The Moldovan party highly values these training projects and is interested in continuing them.

The project was the result of discussion and decisions taken in the first and second sessions of the Moldovan-Polish Forum for European Integration (in February and October 2010) and during visits (October 2010) of the Minister of Internal Affairs of Moldova to Warsaw and of representatives of Moldova’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to the Polish police headquarters.

The Moldovan party asked for training in the acquisition and management of EU funds, as they have no staff skilled in this field. Because of this, instruments such as the ENPI (European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument) and other international funds are not properly utilised by the Moldovan MFA for carrying out reforms.

The project was directly addressed to the staff of Moldova’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. Training participants were representatives of the ministry units dealing with international cooperation and its financing, with particular focus on the European Union. Three training sessions were held within the project – one in Chisinau and two in Warsaw.

Within the project, 38 employees of Moldova’s Ministry of Internal Affairs acquired knowledge on the effective use of EU and Member States’ assistance in reforming law enforcement bodies. Training material was also prepared and issued to each project participant in the form of data on CD/DVD (80 units).
