Police cooperation in the criminal field appears as an effective tool for combating
crime and all its manifestations. The realization of this cooperation is of elementary
importance for the whole society, given that crime can permanently damage the social goods
and values and lead to irreparable losses. Police cooperation refers to taking joint action
between the police, institutions and bodies, primarily the bodies for criminal prosecution,
control, etc.
Police cooperation works on two levels. The first isthe state level that extends within
the country and here they cooperate with the institutions in the country, the state bodies and
the authorities of the Republic of Northern Macedonia. The second level isthe country police
cooperation performed by our police and the foreign police services in those parts of the
organizations which have their own member states and which cooperate when it comes to
crime. Such organizations are INTERPOL, EUROPOL, SELEC. Given this, it can be said
that such cooperation is of immense importance, especially for those who provide it. The
term "police cooperation" means joint work between the police and other authorities in order
to ensure the effective detection of crime, which can appear in various forms, to detect and
detain the perpetrators of crimes, as well as to undertake crime prevention activities.
Regardless of the form in which crime appears, it represents a bad influence on society,
threatens the life and well-being of a person and causes serious consequences. In this regard,
police cooperation generally consists of joint work, exchange of experiences, professional
training and education of staff, improvement of police work methods.
This means that in order to deal with crime, there must be an emphasized police
cooperation, both between the police services and between the police and other institutions
of the justice system, primarily within the state, and then internationally. Within the state
framework, the police cooperates with the criminal prosecution authorities, such as the
public prosecutor's office, with social protection departments such as the Center for Social
Work, with the public, i.e., with the citizens and the media. While international police
cooperation is realized between police services - members of some organizations such as
INTERPOL, EUROPOL, SELEC. In relation to the previously mentioned collaborations,
international police cooperation is emphasized, because international crime represents a
serious threat at the global level, but also a challenge for the states in the fight against its
suppression. In addition, the prevention of international crime is unthinkable without the
coordinated action of the police services in the states, when it comes to the prevention and
repression of crime.
This means that international police cooperation is a basic instrument of police services in
the fight against transnational crime.
The paper will discuss police cooperation in the criminal area. The cooperation
between the police and criminal prosecution authorities and the police cooperation that takes
place in international frameworks, will also be elaborated.
