The Nordic Countries are considered pioneers on cross border cooperation and information exchange between national law enforcement agencies. The urge for quick and effective cross border law enforcement cooperation seamlessly fits AMBER Alert Europe’s 5 key points. These 5 key points, currently filed as a Written Declaration in the European Parliament, particularly focus on improving cross border police cooperation and information sharing.
