Meeting of the Public Order TIG in Poland

The ENLETS Public Order Technology Interest Group (PO TIG) was established to exchange experience and monitor innovative solutions that can improve police abilities to sustain security during mass events and crisis situations. The aim of the PO TIG is to help consolidate understanding of multiple approaches and technologies used across the European Union to keep public spaces secure and citizens safe.

Members of the PO TIG met in Poland between the 24th and 28th of April 2023. The group visited three places:

• Mazovian Voivodeship Police Headquarters in Radom,
• POLSECURE fair in Kielce,
• Police Academy in Szczytno.

The first part of meeting took place in Radom, where the members of the group participated in the equipment demonstrations and the drills of officers from the Preventive Police Department and the Independent Counter-Terrorist Subdivision of the Police. They also got to know the elements and tactics of the operational units, as well as the methods of action of the Mazovian Police in the field of ensuring public order.

Our study also identifies current public order equipment, technology, legal regulations, training, working methods and processes, standards and automation used by European LEAs, and will also serve as a starting point for future TIG cooperation. The PO TIG members also started their search for industry providers of the needed solutions. The POLSECURE fair provided a great opportunity for such a task.

The final destination was the Police Academy in Szczytno, where experts took part in a computer simulation as an element of training of police command officers during complex crisis situations. They had a chance to build their own operational centre and practice the management of police activities during demonstrations and riots. The Police Academy is one of a kind, as it is a place where tactics for handling mass events can be practiced in a safe, virtual environment.
