Aleksandrs is a Latvian Border Surveillance Officer taking part in a Frontex operation in Greece. He is part of a team in a thermo-vision van that performs border surveillance activities at night. They are on the lookout for any criminal activities off the coast of the island of Lesbos.
“At home, I am responsible for the inspection and monitoring of border control procedures at the external border with Belarus. Here I am part of Joint Operation Poseidon 2019 on Lesbos. It is my third time on the island. Over time I have seen the situation here improve considerably thanks to support from the European Union.
I have a strong belief that Frontex will continue strengthening and improving the security of the external border of the European Union."
