German police donation to Croatian colleagues

The police in the southern coastal city of Split on Thursday received a donation from Germany worth 70,000 euro, including four police patrol bikes, while another four bikes will be handed over to the police in Zadar.

Wolfgang Lohmann of the German Federal Interior Ministry on that occasion said that the police in both countries have established a proper partnership and friendship and expressed his pleasure with the donation, adding that this was a very important project in Germany where policemen on bikes are much closer to citizens.

"I'm pleased that we could donate these valuable bikes to the Croatian police. I hope that our cooperation will continue. This is not the first donation and there will be more and our cooperation will continue to grow," Lohmann said.

Police chief Krunoslav Borovec said that the total value of this donation is more than 70,000 euro and that 4 bikes each would be allocated to the police in Split and Zadar, as well as 60 sets of equipment to maintain peace and order.
