A joint Czech-Saxon police unit to be formed
The police in the Czech Republic and in Germany’s free state of Saxony will join forces next year to battle cross-border criminal activity. Czech Interior Minister Jan Kubice and his Saxon counterpart Markus Ulbig have agreed to begin preparing plans for a joint police unit that would begin operations in March of next year. The main goal for the unit would be to fight against drug sales and trafficking across the Czech-German border, especially in the case of Methamphedamine, as well as car theft. A similar unit called Nisa already exists on the Saxon-Polish border.
