The law enforcement activities of the Pompidou Group are as follows:
Airports Group comprising customs and police;
International Precursor network group comprising law enforcement, regulatory authorities and prosecutors;
Cybercrime linked to drugs comprising law enforcement, prosecutors and private sector.
All participants to these meetings are from Pompidou Group member States, Council of Europe member and observer States, MedNET countries, international organisations and experts from Asia, South America, Australia etc.
The main objective of this Group, which comprises customs and law enforcement officers from 39 countries, is to develop and harmonise tools and systems to improve drug detection in European airports.
Given the acknowledged need for an accelerated information exchange among law enforcement officers and representatives of regulatory boards and competent prosecutors/magistrates, the aim of the Ad hoc Expert Group on the Prevention of Drug Precursors’ Diversion is to explore conditions for more rapid and direct contact among the agencies and services concerned in member States.
The aim is to provide a platform for cooperation among law enforcement officials and experts on drug related cybercrime, connecting specialists (customs, police, prosecutors, judges, computer crime specialists) and relevant international organisations and the private sector, notably IT companies and internet providers.
