Centre for police and customs cooperation (CCPD)

In March 2003, the Centre for police and customs cooperation (Centre de coopération policière et douanière - CCPD) was set up in Luxembourg.

It was created as a result of a quadrilateral agreement between Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg. Police and customs officers from the neighbouring countries are represented alongside Luxembourgish officers.

It is mainly concerned with the exchange of police information originating from the cross-border region and between police units.

In 2019, the Luxembourg office of the CCPD recorded 7,555 requests from other authorities (Police, public prosecutor's office, Customs and Excise Agency, district courts). In return, the Luxembourg office provided 8,348 responses to international colleagues.
