SEESAC Completes Series of Trainings on Firearm Detection and Risk Analysis in Seven Jurisdictions

Considering the findings from the Needs Assessment Report evaluating the capabilities of Bosnia and Herzegovina's authorities in combatting firearm trafficking and illegal possession, SEESAC implemented a comprehensive training program for the law enforcement agencies. The training equipped them with advanced knowledge in firearms detection and the practical application of risk analysis methodologies.

The four-day training took place in Mostar from 4 to 7 July, providing law enforcement officials with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively address firearm trafficking and illicit possession. Additionally, the training enhanced their operational capacities, fostering closer collaboration among relevant stakeholders.

The training comprised a theoretical segment, followed by practical exercises tailored to enhance participants' expertise and practical proficiency in the field.

SEESAC has been involved in supporting activities aimed at combatting the illicit possession and trafficking of small arms and light weapons across South East and East Europe. Through its efforts, SEESAC strengthens the capabilities of law enforcement agencies in the region, contributing to its overall security and safety.

This training marks the completion of a series of training programs for law enforcement across South East and East Europe. Similar trainings have been previously conducted for the Criminal Police in Chisinau, Belgrade, Skopje, Pristina, Tirana, and Podgorica.

The training was organised with the EU support provided through the EU Council Decision 2019/2111 in support of arms control activities in South East Europe and reinforces the commitment of Bosnia and Herzegovina to combat trafficking and illicit possession of firearms.
