Road Policing


In 2010 a series of exchange visits were organised between specialists on road policing from Moldova, the UK and the Republic of Georgia, which resulted in significant reforms to improve road policing in Moldova and limit corruption and petty bribes.

Now, EASST’s Serghei Diaconu from Moldova meets regularly with local road police and other ‘blue light’ services across the region to share their experiences and advise on issues such as drink driving and seat belt enforcement, speed and traffic management, and effective emergency response.

Speed Awareness and Driver Rectification


With the support of the UK’s National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS), EASST has conducted a pilot programme to test whether similar courses would assist law enforcement in Moldova, where driver attitudes, circumstances and the road climate are very different. This was the first time that NDORS has approved delivery of its courses outside the UK.
