Safety in Kosovo - Security in Kosovo
The main responsible safety bodies in Kosovo consist of the NATO led Kosovo Force (KFOR) and the local police which are assisted by the international police. The reliability of electricity, telecommunications and the water systems has improved to a great extent compared to past years. The Kosovo Police Service normally performs regular police functions and duties and is constantly assisted in such tasks by professional international officers.
Nearly all of the cities in Kosovo are considered safe as they possess fairly low rates of crime and violence. However, those visiting the northern area of Kosovo should have more caution for the reason that the situation in the city of Mitrovica is still quite tense.
The number to be dialed in cases of any emergency requiring the ambulance, police, or fire services is 92 for land lines and 211 for mobile telephones. In cases of non-emergencies, any local police stations may be contacted.
