      The Republic of Srpska Ministry of the Interior, in cooperation with the TAIEX (Technical Assistance and Information Exchange Instrument of the European Commission), is organising the expert mission for the representatives of police authorities and agencies in BIH, on the subject ‘’Psychological Support to Police Officers’’, which will be held from 16-20 September 2019 in Banja Luka.
      
Through lectures of experts from the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Slovenia, training on providing psychological support in stressful situations, and controlling negative emotions, the participants of this event increased their knowledge concerning the work of commissioners and police officers who find themselves in such situations.
      
This is an important field in performing police tasks, and the Republic of Srpska Ministry of the Interior has been paying considerable attention lately in educating police officers to work in high-risk situations and other stressful situations. In this regard, since last year an organisational unit has been established within the Republic of Srpska Ministry of the Interior, which has the task of providing psychological assistance and support to police officers.
