Duration:  Monday, 1 January, 2007 to Saturday, 30 June, 2007
Project Description: 

Donor: Casals/USAID

The State Police is the main institution that provides public safety and order in Albania. As it happens with other state institutions in the country, certain elements of the State Police reportedly are corrupted, abuse with their positions and power to attain underserved or illegal privileges. This project was developed in partnership with Citizen Advocacy Office (CAO) and Albanian Coalition against Corruption (ACAC) as an attempt to fight these phenomena through public accountability of State Police to communities of citizens. The goal of the project is reduction of corruption and abuse of law in the State Police through the rise of public awareness and organization of citizens.
