Policing in Roma Communities

IRCA with support from Swedish Support for Community Policing implemented the project “Roma Youth Inclusion to Increase Security in the Community in Fier”.   This project aimed to create a collaborative bridge between Roma youth, schools, the police and the Fier Municipality.   About 200 youth, from Driza (the “Roma Village”), Baltëz, and from Mbrostar Ura in Fier, created connections with police officers to address their own security issues.   Also, 50 police officers of Fier learned more about Roma cultural elements as well as about Roma culture to help them increase their skills in intercultural communication.
