In the second week of December 2022, another 323 standing corps officers graduated from their basic training and are now full-fledged members of the European standing corps. The European Border and Coast Guard standing corps is tasked with helping to make the Schengen Area stronger and more resilient. It includes Frontex personnel and officers from the Member States who are sent to the agency for long- or short-term missions. In addition, a reserve is part of the corps that can be activated in times of crisis. The corps began operating in 2021 and will comprise 10,000 officers by 2027. The new officers will soon join their approximately 2000 colleagues who are currently working in operations along the EU’s external borders and in non-EU countries.
