Being one of the main transport corridors of Europe, the Danube is exposed to a significant security threat, which is a challenge for the law enforcement bodies in both Schengen and non-Schengen countries in the region. Increased passengers and freight traffic intensified the smuggling and human trafficking on the Danube.
As due response to the arising security risks, followed by a need for joint international cooperation, DARIF project enables settling a regular cooperation platform, the “Danube River Law Enforcement Forum”, which can significantly improve the safety and security of the European Transport Corridor VII. This platform prepares statistics, reports and analysis for the Danubepolice and ensures accelerated exchange of information flow due to a direct connection and traffic surveillance and monitoring on the Danube, reducing time for detection of cross-border crime and emergency situations. An innovative aspect of the project was bringing all law enforcement authorities in the Danube region countries to the same table.
Together, we are working to ensure a modern and secure traffic corridor on the Danube region!
