The project Support to Combating Illicit Arms Trafficking in Kosovo for Criminal Police (CPIAT), implemented by UNDP in Kosovo, aims to support the Kosovo Police in strengthening their capacities to better detect and increasingly confiscate firearms, components and ammunition, and improve the quality of investigations. The emphasis is on investigations against organized crime and criminal groups dealing with international arms trafficking using Kosovo as a transit route for illicit arms trafficking into the Western European countries. Due to the new modus operandi of online sale market of illegal weapons, the project further addresses the issue of advancing online investigations on illegal weapons by collecting information from the open source intelligence (OSINT) through specialized software provided to the Kosovo Police investigation department.

The project is based on the organizational model People – Processes - Technology and includes activities to increase the human and technical capacities of the Kosovo Police in the field of firearm detection and investigation. The project is expected to contribute to higher detection rates during traffic controls and house searches, increased number of leads during special investigative measures, higher seizure of weapons, and increased public safety.

The project seeks to achieve one key result:

1. Capacities of Kosovo Police increased in the field of detection and confiscation of firearms, components and ammunition as well as the quality of investigations leading to higher conviction

The project is contributing to Goals 2 ,3 ,5 and key performance indicators 3, 4, 8, 10, 14 of the Roadmap for a sustainable solution to the illegal possession, misuse and trafficking of Small Arms and Light Weapons and their ammunition in the Western Balkans.
