The Commissioner of the New Zealand Police and Europol’s Executive Director have signed a Working Arrangement and Memorandum of Understanding, that will allow the New Zealand Police to deploy a permanent liaison officer to Europol’s headquarters in The Hague, and will enable New Zealand Police to use the Europol managed Secure Information Exchange Network Application, which contributes to a secure exchange of crime-related information.
The attacks in Christchurch have shown the need of increased international cooperation also in the area of counter terrorism. Europol sees potential for cooperation with New Zealand in other areas as well, like online child sexual exploitation, Organised Motorcycle Gangs and drug trafficking.
