The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRJ) and Miloševic periods left a number of extremely negative organisational legacies in the Army, police and intelligence agencies in Serbia-Montenegro. In the autumn of 2000, FRJ faced a number of organisational level security sector reform challenges. These fell into two related categories. First, there were a series of structural level issues in relation to role, force structure and professional expertise. Second, all organisations in the FRJ security sector confronted negative past legacies in relation to questions of ethics and responsibility. The challenges if anything went even deeper, incorporating the worst aspects of the Miloševic´ legacy and including partification, corruption and responsibility for war crimes. Issues of professional responsibility have presented some of the most deeply rooted and persistent security sector reform challenges in Serbia-Montenegro. The new Police Law of November 2005 incorporates a number of specific measures aimed at transforming the Serbian Police.
