Use of technical tools for combating smuggling

09 April 2019

Partners of the Latvia-Lithuania programme project “SYNERGY FOR SECURITY” may be pleased that most of the intentions have been successfully implemented, large-scale purchases of modern technologies have been made. Great attention has been paid to the development of technical tools.  As a result, the number of violations detected on the “green” border has doubled. In 2018, the staff of the Latvian State police Latgale department took out 15 580 588 pieces (compared to 7 470 815 years earlier – in 2017) and 25 615 l of smuggled alcohol (against 15 457 liters in 2017). The volume of oil products withdrawn has also increased from 34 255 liters of illicit fuel in 2017 to 45 242 liters in 2018.

The project is co-financed by the Latvia-Lithuania programme. Project Lead partner is Latvian State police.
