Policy Area (PA) ‘Secure’ focuses on protection from land-based emergencies, accidents and cross-border crime.

PA Secure promotes a comprehensive and coherent approach to reduce trans-boundary vulnerabilities and to build common capacities for societal security in the Baltic Sea region. PA Secure activities are related to four areas: better risk assessment and crisis management, building up resilience and prevention towards emergencies and threats at the local level, enhancing effective cooperation in protecting human beings against criminal threats and preventing serious crime through developing efficient framework for law enforcement cooperation.

PA Secure is coordinated by Sweden and Council of the Baltic Sea States Secreatariat.
