QROC: First table top exercise for police operational centers
On 12 and 13 October 2020, the first table top exercise for police operational centers from several countries of the European Union were conducted to improve the skills and procedures for rapid response to crimes and secure cross-border data exchange.
The role of the Polish Platform for Homeland Security is to develop scenarios that constitute the basis for conducting such exercises for law enforcement agencies within the framework of the QROC (Quick Response for Operational Centers) project. The lessons learned from the event and the observations made by police officers will be used to update the scenarios for the remaining table top exercises planned in the project for 2021.
The QROC project aims to identify needs, to exchange good practices, and to carry out a foresight procedure, which is a method of forecasting the future in terms of new technologies that could be used by police operational centers to improve public security.
QROC is an initiative of the European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services (ENLETS) as a part of the Internal Security Fund, an instrument for police cooperation financed by the European Commission.
