Police Cooperation is one of the seven priority themes identified in the WAWG Co-Chairs Work Plan until September 2019. This priority theme focuses on practical approaches to police cooperation in order to build the capacity of police forces to counter terrorist activities in four areas all addressed during the Workshop: border management, information sharing and communications systems; cooperation with regional and international mechanisms and institutions; strengthening evidence collection and databases; and, cooperation with the criminal justice system. These themes are also areas of attention in the United Nations (UN) Global Counterterrorism Strategy, and in UN Security Council Resolution 2322 (2016).
