Liaison Officer to Law Enforcement Agencies/Collation Intel Specialist at EUFOR HQ – Camp Butmir (Sarajevo)

The mission of the EUROGENDFOR Officer assigned to this position within the EUFOR HQ is to provide the Mission Commander (COMEUFOR) with fused and timely intelligence to maintain enhanced situational awareness and to support the building of a Safe And Secure Environment (SASE) in Bosnia i Herzegovina (BiH).

More specifically, as a Gendarmerie/Police Officer, he is tasked to liaise with the Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) BiH-wide in order to collect and exchange information in relation with the SASE.

During the four last weeks, he was tasked to get accurate and timed information concerning following topics:

- Security issues as a consequence of illegal-crossing migrants entering BiH territory.

- Various protest due to inter-ethnical, economical, social or political purposes.

- Evolution of the political situation and ongoing tensions. As a consequence of those tensions, the House of People (State-level Ministers) is still not settled up since the last general elections in October 2018.

On 4 and 5 February, Operation Commander General Sir James Everard, from SHAPE visited Camp Butmir, and during the medal parade organised for the occasion, the EUROGENDFOR Officer was awarded the EUFOR ALTHEA Operation Medal.
