Greece and Albania join forces to tackle drugs and cross-border crime

Hellenic Police chief Constantinos Tsouvalas and the General Director of the Albanian State Police Haki Cako decided to join forces, during a meeting on Thursday, in order to deal with the problem of drugs between Greece and Albania and cross-border crime.

Both of the chiefs recognised the fact that some cross-border crimes (such as drugs, thefts and burglaries near Greek-Albanian borders etc.) have been more intense lately having as a consequence the necesity of action. Therefore, they both agreed to:

To promote the institution of simultaneous patrols at the borders of both countries;

to designate contact points for the direct exchange of cross-border and organised crime information;

and to hold meetings between the technical teams of both police forces to tackle crime in the areas close to common land borders and the regular evaluation of their effectiveness.
