In December, Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, and Europol signed an agreement to exchange liaison officers.
The agreement is part of the Joint Action Plan signed by the Executive Directors of the two agencies last year, aimed at strengthening the agencies’ common effort in enhancing the security of EU citizens.
The liaison officers will contribute to information exchange between both agencies.
“I am looking forward to welcoming the first Europol liaison officer in Warsaw later this year. The exchange of information between the two agencies will improve the work of border guards and support investigations,” said Frontex Executive Director Fabrice Leggeri.
