Police of the Czech Republic
The successful detection and prosecution of corruption and financial crime is difficult and needs substantial resources. The Police and other law enforcement bodies of the Czech Republic are limited by national budgets and often cannot afford procuring adequate technology and equipment, thus making it easier for criminals to perpetrate crimes and to conceal proceeds from unlawful activities. The free movement of people, goods, services and money has further contributed to facilitate corruption and financial crimes. Experienced, qualified and well equipped personnel as well as close international cooperation are needed to effectively combat these problems.
The goal of the project is to enhance the successful detection and prosecution of corruption and serious financial and economic crime. This shall be achieved through strengthened capacities of the relevant police unit as well as through reinforced cooperation with the respective counterparts of neighbouring countries.
The project will finance capacity building through three study visits for 10 Czech experts to the relevant institutions in Germany and Slovakia, as well as through an international seminar for 50 experts. Furthermore, a 5-day training session for 50 police officers will be organised. In addition, necessary IT and technical equipment used for the establishment of an analytical centre as well as for criminal investigation and training measures will be procured. Finally, the existing corruption investigation guidelines will be reviewed and improved.
