The European Union donates 26 vehicles to the Senegalese Police to combat organised crime, irregular migration and human trafficking
The European Union has provided the Senegalese National Police with 26 vehicles within the framework of the internal security cooperation programme between Senegal and the European Union (SENSEC-EU) aimed at preventing and reducing destabilising factors to preserve the country’s development.
This delivery of equipment reinforces the European Union’s commitment to Senegal for cooperation and internal security and will enable the Senegalese police to carry out surveillance and control missions more efficiently, which is essential during this period of health crisis.
With a budget of €10 million euros, this programme, led by CIVIPOL and partly managed by the FIIAPP, supports the security services responsible for combating irregular migration, migrant smuggling and human trafficking through three components: fighting organised crime and terrorism, border control and surveillance, support for good governance in the internal security sector.
The programme contributes to personnel training, for which it has the support of the Spanish National Police and encourages the rehabilitation of facilities and the purchase of more efficient equipment and resources.
