Lion DC – a new European project implemented by the PPHS
We would like to inform that the Polish Platform for Homeland Security is participating in an international project concerning fight against online drug crimes titled “Law Enforcements Technological Innovation Consolidation for Fight Against Online Drug Crimes (LION DC)”, which is led by the Mykolas Romeris University in Vilnius. The project consortium includes 12 partners form such countries as Poland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria, and Romania. The project is financed under the EU Internal Security Fund Police program. Its implementation began in December 2018 and will continue until December 2020.
The main objective of the “LION DC” is to provide agencies and institutions responsible for security with new competences, methodology, and tools for fighting online drug crimes, by consolidating expert knowledge, creating a sandbox training platform and developing and improving investigative techniques. Moreover, the objective of the project is to develop a model of permanent partnership between agencies dealing with online drug trafficking.
The PPHS, as a leader of Work Package 2, is responsible for defining the online drug crime phenomenon, identifying the needs, requirements and expectations of the agencies participating in the project to improve online drug trafficking investigations, and analyzing the available tools to help fight online drug trafficking.
