The QROC project has been completed
Between the 29th-30th March 2022, the QROC (Quick Response for Operational Centers) project’s Final Event took place at Conference Centre De Ruwenberg in Sint-Michielsgestel (Netherlands) and was hosted by the National Police of the Netherlands.
The main aim of the project was to showcase the added value of a communication capability for LEAs to exchange operational data across borders (such as pictures, video footage), especially in times when terrorist threats and other major incidents are more prevalent, and to do this in a quick and safe way.
During this final QROC event, the third and final tabletop exercise was conducted. In this exercise, different technologies were used to promote cross-border data exchange. The scenario focused on a case of crowd management and public space protection. The participating LEAs played as OC operators responsible for securing a Pride Walk organised by the LGBTQIA+ community in the Hague.
The event was accompanied by demonstrations of technologies that could improve situational awareness and the decision-making process, and help Operational Centres exchange data across borders during the golden hour.
The role of the Polish Platform for Homeland Security was to develop the scenario that constituted the basis for conducting such exercise within the framework of the QROC project.
