Bringing neighbours closer
Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!About the programme

Both the border guard and the police have repeatedly acknowledged that the border area of Latgale is a huge temptation and an object of interest to smugglers and illegal immigrants. However, thanks to the efforts of the security authorities, investment in new technologies and successful cross-border cooperation, the flow of illegal traffic has been greatly reduced. This is also confirmed by statistics – if a record number of violators of illegal “green” borders -476- were arrested on the eastern border of Latvia in 2015, then only 45 Vietnamese citizens were detained during the first five months of this year. The State Police emphasizes the importance of involving local people. Therefore, we invite everyone living at the border – do not be indifferent! Look and speak!
The project is co-financed by the Latvia-Lithuania programme. Project Lead partner is latvian State police.
