Acts of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) terrorism are four new risks that the European public has to take into consideration. The use of CBRN weapons in acts of terrorism could open the door to the possibility of destabilization of the European Union, and lead to undermining its economic stability, public security and social integrity.

The CBRN-POL project aims to increase public security, and in particular, public resilience to crises involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear components, particularly if intentionally caused by terrorists. During such events, the role of the police is expected to be substantially greater than in the case of industrial or traffic accidents involving chemical spills or biological leaks, etc.

We have put together a multidisciplinary team of experienced specialists representing various disciplines, ready to share their experience and professional knowledge of dealing with CBRN threats. Institutions with material expertise in CBRN issues who are contributing to the project include the Belgian Centre of Nuclear Research, the University of Lodz and the Industrial Chemistry Research Institute, which have joined forces with the Polish National Police Headquarters to form a unique taskforce. In addition, a partner from Cyprus, CARDET, specializing in teaching methodology, rounds out the necessary competencies.

CBRN-POL’s programme includes analysis of training needs, in order to collect detailed information on gaps in the knowledge and skills of police officers in the CBRN incidents. Based on these analyses, we try to fill gaps in police CBRN knowledge and skills through creation of an educational curriculum, handbooks and instruction manuals, supplemented with audio-visual materials.

We believe that this project will increase first-responders’ capacity to mitigate CBRN risks, as well as the consequences of their misuse in the territory of the European Union.
