EU to create new network of airport police service.
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).
