Message of the Director

Welcome to the web site of the State Investigation and Protection Agency. Here you can find general information about the Agency, its competence, organisational structure and role in the security system of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as information about the latest operations, cooperation with other agencies and institutions, media reports about our activities and many other interesting facts about our work, all with the aim of increasing accountability and transparency of the SIPA’s work.

As part of a continuous process of modernisation and capacity building, as well as development of public relations, SIPA launched the new web site designed in accordance with the latest trends in February 2015. The website allows you to easily track news and events related to the activities of SIPA, it offers a streamlined presentation of the content, facilitated search and information access, and integration with social networks and content sharing. By using responsive web design, citizens can follow us on mobile phones and tablets. Our activities can be followed also on SIPA’s social network accounts (YouTube, Facebook and Twitter).

In the previous period, SIPA has achieved significant results in fulfilment of tasks and duties within its competence, thus confirming its roles of the leading police agency in Bosnia and Herzegovina and beyond and desirable partner in the international police cooperation and building trust with citizens. SIPA has a staff who performs their work professionally and responsibly and is technically equipped to combat all types of crime. SIPA cooperates with other security authorities and institutions in B&H on a daily basis in order to jointly respond to all security challenges of today.

SIPA will continue to work intensively and priorities will be given to the fight against terrorism as the greatest security challenge of today as well as all types of organised crime and corruption as obstacles to the progress of society, and above all to EU integration with the aim of creating a safer environment for all citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dear citizens, we expect from you to be our partners in this fight, as always before.

SIPA staff does their job professionally and honourably. They are at the service of citizens 24 hours a day and take care of your safety, which is the main task of SIPA.
