On December 4, 2002 the Center for the Study of Democracy
donated training equipment to the Academy of the Ministry of
Interior in the framework of a project aimed at enhancing the
anti-corruption capacity and the education process in the Academy.
The donation included books and training materials in fields such
as human rights, psychology, criminal investigation, etc.
As the cooperation between CSD and the Academy is
supported by the Royal Norwegian government, the Ambassador of
Norway Rolf Baltzersen was present at the official ceremony of
delivering the equipment and the books. In his speech before the
Academic Council and the cadets Ambassador Baltzersen expressed
hope that the cooperation between the Academy and the Center for
the Study of Democracy will continue in the future in the larger
framework of cooperation between Norway and Bulgaria. Ambassador
Baltzersen met with the cadets from the Police Department and
discussed with them the challenges and the incentives that
motivated them to study at the Academy.
