On March 26, 2015 Charge d’Affaires Bix Aliu and U.S. Embassy Podgorica’s ICITAP (International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program) team presented $5,000 worth of training equipment to Montenegro’s National Police Academy.  This equipment will assist in training new police recruits and veteran officers in modern self-defense techniques, how to safely handcuff suspects and also how to measure and diagram crime and vehicle accident scenes.

This donation 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; peace and security; and a better life for all of Montenegro’s citizens.
