Sanja Veic (member of the ROADPOL Executive Committee)
I'm working at Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia, in the General Police Directorate - Road Safety Service for more than 20 years, as independent police inspector. After high school I graduated as security engineer. My job position is on national level, so includes coordination and cooperation with all regional traffic police forces.
Two main parts of my work are collection, analysis and dissemination of road traffic accidents statistics and international cooperation on road safety issues. I was involved in Croatian negotiation process for membership in the European Union since its beginning as member of interministerial experts group dealing with implementation of EU Directives in the road transport area.
Also I was involved in creation of National road safety programme of the Republic of Croatia 2011-2020 which was based on EU 4th Action Programme for the road traffic safety 2011-2020 and UN Decade of Action.
During 2004 and 2005 I was representative of Croatia at UNECE WP1 - Global Forum for Road Traffic Safety. With years of experience I became a member of European Commission’s expert group CARE- the European Union's road accidents database as well as ETSC PIN panellist for Croatia.
In December 2017 together with ETSC I organised ETSC PIN talk in Zagreb, Croatia. Last few years I also participate as Croatian representative at High Level Group on Road Safety of the European Commission.
My free time is reserved for pilates classes for which I’m licenced instructor.
