The European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services

Core Group

The Core Group is the structure that set the objectives for ENLETS and sets a hub at the EU level. The 11 members, led by the Dutch Police, meet regularly to discuss the most crucial focus areas and set the priorities for ENLETS. The CG deploy the budget received and consider avenues for related projects that support the strategic aims of the network.

National Contact Points

If the Core Group is the wheel’s hub, the NCPs provide the spokes that radiate out. The NCPs help filter down the core themes of the network connecting the relevant groups and individuals to the activities of ENLETS. Also, the NCPs help to facilitate knowledge exchange and updates throughout the network.

Technology Interest Groups

Thematic Technology Interests Groups (TIGs) connect associated LEA practitioners from all around Europe to collaborate and engage on the specific topics relevant to the ENLETS strategy. Each group sets its own goals and is headed by a chair to guide the members towards their strategic goals.

29 Members contribute to ENLETS. The group frequently meets to discuss relevant topics related to technology and associated matters.

The group exchanges information and updates on the latest matters concerning the strategic points the network is focusing on at a given time.

ENLETS works by sharing best practices on a broad level, engaging on mutual priorities and stimulating future research. The environment promotes collaboration and fosters a supportive network working to help each other through current challenges.

At the TIG level, best practices sit at the centre and ideas and insights help foster progress across Europe. The groups share use cases, recent projects and challenges. A secure chat application is widely used between meetings to support the exchange of good practices and valuable materials that support the efforts of each group.

Due to limited travel caused by the COVID pandemic, ENLETS meetings take place in a virtual setting. Previously, most meetings occurred in person and less often than at present. As Europe transitions back to typical working patterns, ENLETS will adopt a hybrid model – combining virtual events to support mass meetings and physical sessions for small, more focused topics.

Timeline

ENLETS is more than a decade old. The structure and activities are maturing as the network’s presence strengthens. Likewise, as more relations and cooperation opportunities are established, the network aims to expand and provide greater value to all members.

2008 - 2011

ENLETS was founded in 2008 during the French Presidency and is a subgroup of the Law Enforcement Working Party (LEWP) reporting to the Standing Committee of Operational Coordination and Internal Security (COSI). The ambition was to establish a stronger connection between law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and innovative technologies.

2012 - 2014

ENLETS’s main goal is to operationally strengthen Law Enforcement (Police) with the use of modern technology and development by exchanging information, experience and knowledge on a practical communication level.

In 2012 new vigour was brought into the group by establishing a Core Group (CG) and CG leader to steer the network daily and by refreshing the vision and mission of ENLETS.

2014 - 2018

Since 2014 ENLETS has received direct grants from the European Commission’s DG Home. The first of these was in 2014 as the ‘ENLETS Disseminates Best Practices’.

The next grant was given in 2016 for a two-year project ‘ENLETS Security, Technology and Procurement’.

2018 - 2020

ENLETS started its third effort following a new grant. This time DG Home provided funding for the three years. The ENLETS Technology Programme (ETP) started.

2020 - 2021

The ETP continues, but the COVID pandemic makes activities challenging as the model for meetings was most often physical sessions.

The Polish Platform for Homeland Security is appointed as the designated Secretariat. The increased capacity and experience of PPHS allows ENLETS to trigger an online model for regular meetings and renewed energy to counter the loss of momentum caused by the pandemic.
