Internal security is as crucial for European citizen’s welfare as it is for a stable and thriving internal market. In this context, European integration depends on the establishing European cooperation between various nationalities of police and customs officers. Differing national legal regulations, language and cultural obstacles need to be overcome and solutions to technical communication and equipment-related problems have to be provided.
For CESI, European internal security poses a challenge best met by high qualified and highly motivated public service employees. CESI works to foster decent pay and retirement allocations, health and safety in the workplace and establishing a good balance between work and family life.
In 2017, the Security Trade Council has a vast and varied agenda including improving counter-terrorism systems and external border controls/related data exchanges, raising awareness about the role and work of employees in the security sector and coming forward with a proposal on a fund to security sector employees going through a trauma.
