The European Confederation of Police (EuroCOP) is the umbrella organisation for 35 police unions and staff organisations in Europe.

Based in Luxembourg, we represent the interests of over half a million police officers in 27 European countries Today, EuroCOP is tackling issues from police cooperation across borders to a safer working environment for police officers on the street. We are determined to contribute to European policy debates and provide added value by giving a practitioners perspective.

EuroCOP was established in November 2002, and is an independent, non-profit and secular organisation and has no affiliation with any government or political party. Financed through member contributions, EuroCOP is open to any organisation representing police officers in member countries of the European Union or the Council of Europe.

EuroCOP is a non-profit organisation representing the voice of European police officers. Striving to protect the rights, safety, values, and position in society of European police officers, EuroCOP is building stronger channels of communication and cooperation on policing across Europe.
Since EuroCOP’s creation in 2002 we have been fighting to promote four key goals:
         •  A Social Europe for the Police
         •  Internal Security in Europe
         •  Safety for the Police
         •  Solidarity and Network building

By working towards the realisation of these goals EuroCOP is supporting European police forces to keep our society safe and secure.

By 2020 EuroCOP envisions European police officers operating together in an environment of equality, safety and support, provided with the rights, resources, and training to keep Europe’s citizens safe and secure for the long term future.
Achieving EuroCOP’s mission and making our vision for the future a reality is built on clear set of strategic objectives that guide our priorities and actions over the coming five years. EuroCOP’s three strategic objectives are:
  • Raising EuroCOP’s profile
  • Building EU policy that supports European police officers
  • Establishing policing best practice

Deputy General Secretary of the Catalan Police union: Sindicat de Policies de Catalunya. From Barcelona, Catalonia. She has been with the police since 1992.

“EuroCOP is a key organization where police across Europe can denounce the precarious situation in which many police officers find themselves. Most police officers must work and serve the citizens without adequate resources.
I want politicians to be committed to the police. Police officers risk their lives every day on the streets to protect citizens. In exchange, they should be offered adequate labour conditions, decent wages to support their families and, of course, the necessary resources to serve citizens as they deserve.”
