CARPOL meeting (network of EU law enforcement contact points for tackling cross-border vehicle crime)
CARPOL is the European network of national contact points for the fight against cross‑border vehicle crime. It was created based on decision 2004/919/EC of the Council of the European Union with the aim of promoting coordination and cooperation between police services and other law enforcement authorities as well as with other competent public and private organisations and the agencies of the European Union. The national contact points (Federal Criminal Police Office in Austria) hold a meeting at least once a year under the auspices of the member state holding the Council presidency. The presidency reports to the Council on the progress achieved.
