Measures: Normative harmonisation Serbia has identified the main challenges in the implementation of the Acquis Communautaire on police cooperation. There is partial alignment. Special attention and capacities will be focused on the implementation of the Decision 2008/615/JHA on the stepping up of cross-border cooperation, particularly in combating terrorism and cross-border crime (Prüm Decision) and the Framework Decision 2006/960/JHA on simplifying the exchange of information and intelligence between law enforcement authorities of the Member States of the European Union (Swedish Initiative). The need for setting up a SIRENE bureau within the International Operational Police Cooperation Department for the purpose of information exchange and the statistics with a view to meeting the commitment to exchange information with other Member States 24/7 has also been identified. Comprehensive analysis of needs with regard to legal, technical, staff and infrastructure requirements and their costs with a view to harmonization with the relevant parts of the Schengen acquis until the accession to the EU as well as with a view to the admission to Schengen. The conclusion of the Agreement on Operational Cooperation with Europol is expected to take place soon.
