As part of the joint patrol agreement, the head of the Albanian traffic police and the Kosovan traffic police chief have closely inspected the joint work of the police units of the two countries, especially in coastal cities where the flow of vehicles is more high and where more police presence is needed.
"We as Kosovo police have offered support to the Albanian state police, especially in this summer session where there is a greater flow of tourists, not just Kosovars.
I think that until now, in joint patrols, working together has brought its effects on citizens, who have been better and have had more facilitated communication.
For this reason, we will continue the collaboration to facilitate the circulation of traffic and to make citizens feel safer not only in the "Rruga e Kombit" but also in all other roads."- the Kosovo Traffic Police Director, Jeton Rexhepi said in a statement to the Albanian media.
The statements of Mitat Tola
"It is more than 10 years that the Kosovo traffic police cooperates with the Albanian one: a collaboration that has borne much fruit and that continues to bring security for the drivers of vehicles of both countries.
It is a collaboration based on the procedures of the traffic police, that is to prevent road accidents, regulate traffic, exchange experiences with the objective of a peaceful tourist season, without road accidents and various obstacles.
After the end of this tourist season, the agreements in the coming years will be more dynamic in the sense that we could extend the cooperation agreements also for weekends and holidays. ”- declared the director of the Albanian traffic police, Mitat Tola.
Furthermore, for the second consecutive year Albania has scheduled joint patrols for the summer season also with the Italian police in the Albanian coastal tourist areas to assist and help increasingly growing visitors who come from Italy to visit Albania.
