An Update from IPA Section in Foundation Albania

16 Jul 2020

The consequences of the current Covid-19 pandemic are proving hard all over the world with respect to the loss of human lives, economic damages, as well as in the field of security and public order.

Measures taken to combat the coronavirus mean that many activities, meetings and visits were cancelled or postponed. The pandemic, however, did not stop, but moreover enabled us to focus very clearly on friendship, spiritual experience, and care for each other.

During this time we have organised some activities showing that we are not ‘sleeping’, and that we have not lost hope. We have been in contact with all our IPA members whether active in service, or retired, and luckily we have not had any loss of life or infections with Covid-19.

Following contact with IPA-Montenegro, we donated 500 mouth masks for police officers serving at the border Hani Hotit (Shkoder Albania) - Bozhaj (Montenegro). The ceremony was attended by the President of Montenegro, Vojislav Dragovic, and border police chiefs of both countries.

Also in Shkodra, under the auspices of the IPA-Scodrini branch of IPA-Albania, and in cooperation with the Mufti of the Shkodra Region, we donated 50 food packages for families of fallen police officers.

On the Memorial Day of the martyrs of Albania, members of IPA Albania placed a wreath at the Memorial for fallen police officers.


On the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, (Eid Mubarak) IPA Albania members met and congratulated the representatives of the Muslim Community in Shkodra.

Furthermore, a delegation of IPA Albania went on a two-day visit to Serbia, where we had a very fruitful experience.

We receive many requests to join the IPA, which we consider with great care. Our current membership has reached 200. We are working on expanding our existing branches, and on founding new branches in the south and south-east of our country.

At the start of the new tourist season we will organise a cycling tour along the sea shore of Albania, and all participants will be police employees displaying the IPA logo.

We are planning other projects, which we hope to share with you in the near future.
