Bosnia and Herzegovina | Bosnia Legal Socialization Program | 25 Nov 2022















The sixth Police Youth Academy (PYA) within the Legal Socialization Program in Republika Srpska and Brcko District BiH (BLSP RS/BD) was held on November 23, 2022 at the new premises of the Brcko District Police. The event was coordinated and organized by Mirsad Ribic, Deputy Chief of Crime Police Unit for Fighting and Suppressing Organized Crime and Narcotics Abuse and a member of BLSP RS/BD Curriculum Development Team.

Forty students from two secondary schools in Brcko accompanied with their LSP teachers were addressed by Mile Jurosevic, Head of Cabinet of Brcko District Police Chief followed by Samir Corbadzic, Chief of Sub-department for Joint Affairs of the Department for Education of Brcko District Government. In their opening words and subsequent statements for the local TV station reporting on the event, both of them commended the project accentuating its sustainability since trained LSP Teaching Teams will stay within the police force and the participating schools and would continue to work for the benefit of their local communities.

Students had an opportunity to see a training practice including a police dog , some of the Special Police Unit equipment and visit Operational and Communications Center and laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment used for ballistics and fingerprint analysis where police officers introduced them to the work they do. Four police officers gave presentations on the topics of rights and obligations of children and youth, prevention of violence, prevention of addiction and prevention of human trafficking. Afterwards, students divided in four groups working on their own presentations fo the above topics which they later presented to their peers. Students had a lot of fun and liked the experience.

The reports on the event were published in local TV and media portals.
