On May 26, 2017 ICITAP Senior Police Advisor Frank Herbert presented a donation on behalf of U.S. Embassy Podgorica of a Sony HD Video Camera and eight LG 55′ Flat Screen Monitors to Montenegro’s National Police Academy. This donation, valued at $10,000, will allow the Police Academy to create high quality training videos which can be viewed at the academy and also distributed to the country’s regional police stations. The monitors will be installed in the Academy’s classrooms, to allow instructors to better utilize training videos and other presentation materials to benefit police training.
This donation was received by Boban Saranovic, Deputy Director of the Police Academy. Mr. Saranovic thanked the U.S. Embassy and the ICITAP program for the close cooperation with Montenegrin Police and the Police Academy. He stated that this donation would greatly improve the academy’s ability to present training to recruits and veteran officers.
This donation by the U.S. Department of Justice, ICITAP is part of U.S. Embassy Podgorica’s long-standing program of justice sector assistance to Montenegro. The aim of this program is to promote the values of rule of law; global peace and security; and a safe and secure Montenegro.
