Bringing neighbours closer
Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!About the programme
14 November 2018
The third implementation period of the INTERREG V-A Latvia-Lithuania programme project “SYNERGY FOR SECURITY” has already come to the end, when 8 heads of law enforcement agencies and municipalities in Latvia and Lithuania met in Moletai municipality (Lithuania) on November 8, 2018. The partner informed about the achievements in implementing the project, buying equipment and implementing measures to achieve a common goal in the fight against cross-border smuggling and illegal migration. Purchased night vision and other equipment are used in the work of law enforcement agencies and public order provision in local governments. Vytautas Vaiškunas, the police chief of the Utena region of the Republic of Lithuania, emphasized the acceleration of the data exchange flow at the international level. This can be achieved by reducing bureaucratic barriers as they hinder information exchange. The closest thematic meeting will take place in Lithuania at the end of November and its theme will be methods for combating illegal movements of excise goods.
The project is co-financed by the Latvia-Lithuania programme. Project Lead partner is Latvian State police.
