Chapter Summary

Since the development of cooperation in the field of transport police started in the traffic police, this chapter presents the TISPOL, the European Union (EU) Traffic Police Network, although nowadays AQUAPOL, the EU Network for River and Maritime Police and RAILPOL, the EU Network for Railway Police have developed to the same level as TISPOL-in certain aspects even further. Around 2000, traffic police forces all over Europe started to feel the effects of the open EU market and the disappearance of the borders, a process that was further reinforced by the rapid enlargement of the EU. More and better international contacts between police forces were badly needed. Scientific research has shown that due to improved traffic enforcement in the EU, the number of people being killed on Europe's roads has decreased by 15,000 per year since 2002.
