EU to create new network of airport police service.

EU Interrior Ministers meeting here Thursday

welcomed the creation of a permanent cooperation network of the police

services, border guards and other relevant law enforcement services which are

active in and around airports with the aim to increasing security in EU

airports. The new network called AIRPOL will focus on combatting criminal activities

in and around airports, aviation security and illegal migration, the ministers

in a statement. They said that the free movement of citizens within the European Union is

one of the fundamental principles on which the Union is based and that the

abolition of the control at the internal borders within the Schengen area is a

major achievement, but noted the fact that crime does not stop at national

borders. The statement recalled the existence of similar networks in Europe for

railway police forces (RAILPOL), water police forces (AQUAPOL) and traffic

police forces (TISPOL).
