Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, has welcomed 168 new recruits of the European Border and Coast Guard standing corps, Europe’s first uniformed law enforcement service.
The new recruits will begin their six-month training programme in October in Bari, Italy.
This is the second group selected to join the Frontex standing corps. The first group of 260 recruits have already completed their online training and is undergoing in-person training at two centres in Poland.
The standing corps will be composed of Frontex and EU Member States’ officers, who will at any time be able to support national authorities facing challenges at their external borders. The first Frontex standing corps officers will be deployed at the beginning of next year.
