The European Confederation of Police ( EuroCOP ) is the European trade union federation of police unions in the European Union . It emerged on October 31, 2002 from the Union Internationale des Syndicats de Police (UISP), which had existed since 1953 , in order to enable further professional associations , particularly from Great Britain , to join. The umbrella organization has its administrative headquarters in Luxembourg .

EuroCOP is a member of the European Trade Union Confederation .

EuroCOP should not be confused with the concept of a "Euro-Cop" (Europol investigator who is supposed to have police executive powers beyond national borders - see Interpol ).


EuroCOP represents 35 police unions from 27 European countries at EU institutions in matters of domestic and legal policy and thus represents a total of more than 500,000 police officers in Europe.

The president is Angels Bosch Camprecios.

"Police issues from Europol to the plans for a European border police are far too important to be left to the politicians alone," commented GdP chairman Konrad Freiberg at the founding congress in 2002 in Roskilde near the Danish capital Copenhagen .

In December 2015, the German police union resigned.
