International police cooperation on the water

Introducing Aquapol

AQUAPOL’s vision is for a more safe, secure and environmental-friendly waterborne transport in Europe by enhancement of law-enforcement through cross-border cooperation. The AQUAPOL organisation acts as a platform for learning and for a permanent exchange of good practice for law-enforcement in the domain of waterborne transport in Europe. Its main activities are about exchange of intelligence, exchange of operational information and experience and cross border cooperation in day-to-day law-enforcement work. AQUAPOL works closely together with a number of external stakeholders, as well at operational- as at policy- and legislative level.
