The EUPOL COPPS Community Policing and PPIO Teams continued their outreach to the local districts with a recent visit to Qalqilya and Azzun, where the team was received by the PCP District Commander as well as the PCP District Head of Media/PR and Community Policing,; the Mayor of Azzun as well as the ‘Young Police Summer Camp’ in Qalqilya, and a Women’s Association in Azzun.

Despite the many logistical challenges faced in this particular district, it is evident that the PCP in the area is dedicated to providing services to the local population, not least through the use of the Mobile Police Station, a very important asset in the execution of their functions.

EUPOL COPPS, established on 1 January 2006, is the European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission for the Palestinian Territory. Initially the Mission was established as a Police Mission comprising a Police Advisory Section. In 2008 a Rule of Law Section was added.
