Title: Policing Europe in 1992

Annotation: The practical effects of policing in the European Economic Community are examined relative to the Single European Act which provides for an "area without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons and capital is ensured" and the conference declaration on the Act which allows Member States to take necessary measures for controlling immigration, terrorism, crime, and drug trafficking.
Abstract: Reduction in resources at internal frontiers necessitates greater cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of the Member countries. If the five Schengen Agrement countries develop compatible criminal intelligence systems, then the remaining Member States will have little choice but to go along. Existing arrangements which provide international police liaison, such as Interpol and TREVI, are already in place. Those police forces should move forward through structured evolution rather than radical change to monitor, promote, and coordinate EEC police effectiveness by 1992 and beyond.
