Police of the Czech Republic (organized crime division)
Extremism, radical violence and terrorism have become a fast developing international phenomenon affecting also the Czech Republic. The organized crime groups are well resourced and organized, have strong international ties and are highly flexible. So far, the Czech republic has remained a transit country or a logistical base. Although there is no immediate danger of a terrorist attack, the threat remains constant and real.
The goal of the project is the effective fight against terrorism and extremism in the Czech Republic.
The specific objective of the project is a professionally performing and prepared counter terrorism unit which is able to effectively prevent, detect and investigate extremism, terrorism and radicalism.
The first part of the project focuses on the development of human resources and on the training for the use of the technical means procured in this project. Training programmes, international exchange of experiences and review of the counter-terrorism methods and guidelines are foreseen. In the second part of the project, the information and communication technology (hardware and software) as well as analytical and technical tools will be purchased. The staff will be trained in using these new technical tools.
