The European Commission Task Force for the Preparation and Conduct of Negotiations with the United Kingdom under Article 50 TEU has already published documents on how the future framework of police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters could be shaped. These documents are available in the form of slides. They aim at contributing to internal preparatory discussions on the scope of the future EU-UK relationship. They are based on the political guidelines established by the European Council in April 2017 and March 2018.

The first set of slides of 29 January 2018 outline the consequences of the UK withdrawal, the transition period in the JHA area, and models for the future framework as regards the exchange of security-relevant data, support for operational cooperation, and judicial cooperation in criminal matters.

The second set of slides of 18 June 2018 translate the latest European Council guidelines on Brexit negotiations of 23 March 2018 into specific content in a future EU-UK agreement. They also provide a comparison between the EU and UK positions in the JHA field.

All negotiation documents on the so-called Art. 50 negotiations with the UK can be retrieved here.
