The first workshop within the LION DC project and WP2 (Online Drug Crime Phenomena Definition & LEA needs assessment) took place on February 27-28, 2019 at Polish Police Regional Headquarter in Poznan (Poland). The event was organized by the Polish Platform for Homeland Security – WP2 Leader.
The main purpose of the meeting was to identify common needs of Law Enforcement Agencies from six countries (Poland, Lithuania, Romania, Bulgaria, the Netherlands and Greece) in the field of online drug crimes. This was done by presenting crime case scenarios (real cases) prepared by participants. The event also aimed to provide a general overview of the Online Drug Crime Phenomena in the countries and services represented in the consortium.
The meeting was an opportunity to discuss the mutual expectations of the LEA in relation to the project’s results and exchange experience between practitioners in this field from various EU countries.
The WP2 workshop was attended by 20 people – mostly representatives of Law Enforcement Agencies.
The outcomes of the meeting include aligned needs, key findings, priorities and future directions.
