A Spanish newspaper features two participants of this year’s CEPOL European Police Exchange Programme. The article published in June, reflects how Jaroslaw Pieniek, from the Polish Customs Service, and Carlos Astraín, from the Spanish Guardia Civil, learned from each other’s knowledge, best practices and experience on the fight against synthetic drugs.

The paper highlights the potential benefits of this exchange which will help the way Spanish law enforcement agencies deal with smuggling and production of new and emerging drugs such as ketamine, mephedrone or BZP, which are being rapidly introduced in Europe and many of which have not yet been declared illegal.
