According to the current report, the Federal Police achieved almost a quarter more successful searches in 2019 than in the previous year. Federal police officers executed about 50 arrest warrants a day. The situation at the borders remains unclear.
D.Federal police have achieved a much more successful search over the past year. This follows from the previously unpublished annual report for 2019, which is available WELT AM SONNTAG.
Accordingly, officials increased the so-called success in finding people and property by 22.4 percent to a total of 201,536 visits. These were, for example, criminals who are declared for search – or such documents as stolen or forged identity cards of searchers. Federal police officers executed about 50 arrest warrants a day.
In total, in 2019, the Federal Police recorded 576,696 crimes in the area of responsibility. This means a decrease of 14.2 percent compared to 2018. The 21,951 act was a violation of the Narcotics Act. Here, in turn, there was a significant increase of 15.6 percent. One of the central points is the German-Dutch border.
The Federal Police continued to focus on actions against illegal migration. In general, the number of unauthorized crossings at the EU’s external border decreased in 2019. However, it grew on the so-called Eastern Mediterranean route – from Turkey to Greece – by 53 percent compared to the previous year. According to a report by the Federal Police, the expansion of the Balkan route on the land border of Germany and Austria is considered a “hot spot” for unauthorized entry into the Federal Republic.
Illegal entry by air is also important: Federal police see Greece as “the most important country of departure for illegal migration by air.” In 2019, 8,750 people were suspended before leaving (30 percent more than in 2018). In terms of the Crown, the numbers have dropped significantly in 2020; however, the phenomenon will continue to be observed. According to the Federal Ministry of the Interior, by August, federal police officers in Greece had prevented about 3,100 unauthorized trips to the Federal Republic.
