U januaru 2015.g., Centar za sigurnosne studije (CSS) je, u partnerstvu sa još četiri organizacije civilnog društva iz regije, formirao mrežu POINTPULSE s ciljem nadgledanja borbe protiv korupcije u policijama Zapadnog Balkana. Organizacije koje, pored CSS-a, učestvuju u ovom projektu su Beogradski centar za bezbednosnu politiku (BCBP), Balkanska istraživačka mreža (BIRN) iz Beograda, Institut Alternativa (IA) iz Podgorice i Kosovski centar za bezbjednosne studije (KCSS) iz Prištine.

U martu 2016. godine uključuju se još dvije članice – Analitika  iz Skopja i Institut za demokratiju i medijaciju (IDM) iz Tirane.

Projekat ima za cilj da doprinese jačanju povjerenja građana u institucije za provedbu zakona na Zapadnom Balkanu kroz borbu protiv korupcije u policiji ipromovisanje odgovornosti policije.

Specifični cilj je uspostavljanje regionalne mreže za civilni nadzor integriteta policije na Zapadnom Balkanu, koja je osposobljena da prati i javno zagovara ideju odgovornog rada policije.

 

Projekat predviđa sljedeće aktivnosti:

  • uspostavljanje regionalne mreže organizacija civilnog društva Puls integriteta i povjerenja u policiju na Zapadnom Balkanu (POINTPULSE)
  • razvijanje metodološkog okvira za procjenu integriteta policije
  • nadzor i procena integriteta policija na Zapadnom Balkanu (uključujući istraživanja javnog mnjenja, objavljivanje analiza, nacionalnih izveštaja i godišnjeg
  • izveštaja)
  • uticaj na donosioce odluka i podizanje nivoa svijesti o značaju odgovornog rada policije (uključujući radne sastanke sa predstavnicima regionalnih inicijativa za policijsku saradnju, panel diskusije, internet POINTPULSE platformu, medijske priloge i godišnje konferencije).

 

Projekat finansira Evropska unija kroz program Podsticanje civilnog društva (engl. Civil Society Facility) u okviru Instrumenta za pretpristupnu pomoć (IPA).
