The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) appointed a Swedish police officer as the body's new senior police adviser Wednesday.

Knut Dreyer will be seconded to the OSCE by the Swedish government and assume the post on Aug. 30, according to an OSCE press release.

"Dreyer's experience in leading police reform in former conflict zones will be invaluable to the OSCE," OSCE Secretary General Marc Perrin de Brichambaut said.

"His in-depth insight into the policing activities of international organizations such as the OSCE, the UN and the EU will serve him well in his new post," he said.

Dreyer has over 20 years of experience as a senior police officer. At his latest post as program officer for bilateral development with the Swedish National Police Board, he was responsible for projects in Serbia, Rwanda and South Africa.

The OSCE, which has 56 member states, is a regional organization for conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation.
