ZAGREB, August 16, 2019 – Croatian police officers were commended for organising and implementing the Land Border Surveillance Officer Frontex training programme taking place in Sankt Augustin, Germany, on August 11-18 and involving EU member-countries currently faced with the problem of migrant crisis, the Croatian Police Directorate said on Friday.

The programme is designed to prepare police forces of EU member-countries for participation in international operations which are aimed at strengthening internal border control within the Schengen area and the protection of the EU’s external borders.

This is the third time the Croatian Police Academy, a partner to the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), participated in training in Germany, at whose request the training programme was organised.

The programme was based on workshops on police conduct at border crossings, the treatment of asylum seekers and migrants in need of medical help, and the treatment of illegal migrants caught in the EU.

It was attended by 18 border police officers from Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Lithuania and Croatia.
