Annual Report fepdol 2015

Co-operation bears fruit in the fight against terrorism

The Federal Office of Police (fedpol) has published its 2015 Annual Report.  


In a year marked by terrorism, fedpol focussed its attention on national and international co-operation and co-ordination, particularly in the work of the TETRA Task Force. A further priority was the international fight against cybercrime, which is becoming increasingly sophisticated. Based on the cybercrime reports submitted to fedpol, two phenomena stood out in particular: phishing and the online sale of counterfeit products. Also, the number of suspicious activity reports concerning money laundering rose by 35 percent, a marked increase over 2014.
