On 5 July 2019 at the premises of LPD Vlore, the “EDS” Foundation organized the ceremony of the donation of 10 (ten) bicycles and accessories for police officers. The event was carried out in the framework of the project “Strengthening interaction between the community and police” financed by the Swedish funded Strengthening Community Policing in Albania Program. The bikes will be used along the coastline and will serve to increase the presence of the police forces and be closer to the citizens during the holidays’ season.
This activity was attended by representatives of LPD Vlore, the representative of the Embassy of Sweden, representatives of the Program and various media. This donation led to a total number of 60 bikes granted to the ASP by the Strengthening of Community Policing in Albania Program, distributed to the LPDs of Tiranë, Elbasan, Kukës, Durrës, Shkodër dhe Vlorë. These activities support, among others, the promotion of the bicycle use as the most healthy and ecologically friendly mean of transportation in the city.
The ASP representatives expressed their gratitude to the Strengthening Community Policing in Albania program and the Swedish Government for their continuous support provided to Albanian Police.
