European Border and Coast Guard Agency
A Policy agency, also called FRONTEX
Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, supports EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries in the management of EU’s external borders and fighting cross-border crime. The agency is a centre of excellence for border control activities at the EU’s external borders, sharing intelligence and expertise with all EU Member States, as well as neighbouring non-EU countries affected by migratory trends and cross-border crime. Among its many tasks, the agency coordinates the deployment of border and coast guards, along with boats, airplanes, patrol cars and other equipment, to EU countries facing exceptional pressure at their external borders.
