The handover included cameras, investigation kits and four vehicles, which will be crucial to the daily work of the Kosovo Police Forensic Directorate in investigating crime scenes.
Laura Ahmeti, the Forensics Directorate’s Chief of Photography, VideoAnalyses and IT forensics, expressed her gratitude to the EULEX Mission for its continuous support to the Kosovo Police: “ Today’s donation will indeed help us improve our work,” she said.“This equipment will assist us in investigating and documenting crime scenes, as well as further enhancing our professional skills.
She added: “The four vehicles we received will also help us be better able to perform field tasks and generally improve our daily activities.”
Today’s donation is part of the Mission’s continued efforts to strengthen the capacities of the Kosovo Police’s Forensics Directorate. In August, the Mission also donated to a local fire station surplus material, including vehicles.
