With the aim of supporting, building capacities and professionalism of the members of this security forum, with the ongoing support of the Organizations for Safety and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) are organized trainings dealing with the building of partnership, problem solving, drafting of projects etc.
The cultural, religious and ethnic professional diversity, in consisting of Local Communities for Public Safety (LPSC) is quite highlighted, where we could freely say that this diversity reaches up to 85%
The role of Kosovo Police in LPSC is quite significant and vital. Each LPSC has their police representatives who regularly participate in the organized and led meetings by the LPSC heads, on which meetings are exchanged information, concerns of residents and at the same time the cooperation and communication with citizens was advanced.

Through this forum is successfully achieved to be changed the approach of citizens and the mentality in the benefit of the community through the reporting and cooperation of citizens with police.
