See to act

2021: Déjà-vu. The coronavirus pandemic had entered into its second year. With the pandemic came the measures. With the measures came the anger. And with the anger came the threats. Threats against persons under fedpol protection – Federal Councillors, members of parliament and federal employees. Our job is about more than protecting these persons from physical violence. It is about protecting Switzerland’s freedom and democracy.

We are not short on work. On the contrary. The threat of terrorism remained elevated. The Italian mafia and other criminal organisations continued to be active in Switzerland.

Exchanging information and cooperating both at national and international levels is thus absolutely crucial in the fight against crime. Information exchange between police forces is key.
