The Polish Police Contingent has been based in Kosovo since 2000. Initially on behalf of the UN, and now under the auspices of the European Union as part of the EULEX rule of law mission, Polish officers, in cooperation with the police forces of European countries, are responsible for providing safety and security in the region. The Polish Police have been actively involved in the EULEX Kosovo mission, which is reflected in the most numerous personnel representation, consisting of 95 police officers and 7 police experts serving within the structures of the Special Unit of Polish Police (SUPP). Currently in Kosovo, the XXX rotation of the SUPP has been operating, which is the only formation of this kind in missions organised under the auspices of the European Union.
