Given the decision of the Dutch Government that the workforce in the Netherlands should work from home as much as possible, Europol’s Executive Director and the Crisis Management Team have decided to implement teleworking from home for the majority of staff until further notice. Europol has a pandemic response plan in place, ensuring that the agency’s essential work to support law enforcement agencies in the Member States of the European Union continues in any scenario.
Europol’s Crisis Management Team has been actively monitoring the evolving situation of the COVID-19 pandemic since the beginning and is prepared for all possible scenarios to ensure not only the well-being of its staff but also business continuity.
Europol already canceled and suspended all meetings with external participants as well as all business trips two weeks ago.
