Lords discuss future EU policing and security priorities

18 December 2013

The House of Lords Home Affairs, Health and Education EU Sub-Committee will discuss policing and security in the future EU Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) programme with three senior police figures on Wednesday 18 December.


Wednesday 18 December, Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster

At 11.00am:

  • Sir Hugh Orde, President of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO);
  • Rob Wainwright, Director of Europol and President of the European Cybercrime Centre; and
  • Keith Bristow, Head of the National Crime Agency.

The witnesses are likely to face questions including:

  • What should the strategic priorities be in the next JHA programme for policing, security and terrorism?
  • What value might the EU add in tackling serious and organised crime, and would you welcome a framework to discuss common threats within in the EU, including EU agencies and third countries?
  • Should the next programme recommend a review of the effectiveness of Europol?
  • Is there a need for legislation or more cooperation to support an improvement in the exchange of criminal records amongst Member States?
  • Should there be further EU action to tackle human trafficking?
    What action should the Programme recommend to modernise the EU intelligence sharing structure and information management framework?
