The European Police Congress

The “European Police Congress” is an international congress for decision makers from police forces and security authorities and industries. Its intention is to strengthen the dialogue be-tween the authorities and enable the participants to establish new contacts to colleagues from all over the world.

Every year critical discussions on upto-date issues are held and the latest developments in technologies for the professional use in the security sector are presented by the exhibitors. The European Police Congress is the largest conference for internal security in the European Union. Annually the conference is a meeting place for about 1.500 experts from more than 20 countries. Representatives of polices, border polices, secret services as well as governments, parliaments and industries participate in the conference.

The European Police Congress is organized by the “Behörden Spiegel”, Germany’s leading newspaper for public authorities with support of national and European authorities.

The European Police Congress is an annual conference taking place in Berlin at the beginning of each year.

The effects of the refugee crisis become clearer. After the migration, the integration will be now the main point to focus on. The Security Authority in Europe will have to work harder on prevention, because the effects on safety are clearly visible. Security Authorities have to work together with Local Authority districts, as well as social and education authorities, to reach integration and prevention. That’s why it is important to create common strategies and to act together. The Security system in Europe has to operate like one unit!
The two-day European Police Congress is always a media event: radio, television and newspapers report across Europe. The TV station Phoenix broadcasts live several parts of the congress programme. The congress was featured in Tagesschau, Tagesthemen, ZDF Journal and RTL heute. In total, 250 newspapers across Europe reported on the congress.
