On December 16, Chief of Mission of the U.S. Office Pristina, Reno Harnish, donated police equipment and office furniture for a police station in Kacanik, which just recently came under the operational control of the new Kosovo Police Service (KPS). Mr. Harnish said in a press conference that Kacanik was the first of seven police stations in the U.S. sector to receive the equipment and furniture, provided by the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). He said that the KPS is a model for other institutions in Kosovo to follow, and the current level of cooperation between KFOR, CIVPOL, and the KPS should increase the pace for future police station transitions.

CIVPOL Deputy Commissioner Nils Bechmann told KPS officers that the U.S. donation enables them to quickly provide a professional level of democratic police service to the citizens of Kacanik. KPS Colonel Sheremet Ahmeti thanked the U.S. Government, pledging to hold fast to democratic policing principles in the day to day operations of the station. (December 2002, State Department photo)
