In its conclusions on “certain aspects of European preventive policing”of 6 June 2019, the JHA Council invites EU Member States “to make more efficient use of the existing legal framework at national and European level regarding the deployment of officers involved in joint patrols and other joint operations in order to ensure public security in relation to EU nationals on the territory of other Member States.”

Member States, EU institutions, and JHA agencies are called on to actively contribute to the implementation of joint patrols and operations. In addition, the Commission should identify suitable financial instruments, and CEPOL should develop targeted training curricula and promote the sharing of best practices in this context. The conclusions also underline “the need for an enhanced, preventive approach to policing methods, striving to contribute to the development of a safer area for all European citizens.”
