European Parliament: Question to Council of the European Union: U.S. access to European police databases (pdf):

"According to media articles citing government sources in Vienna, Austria granted to the U.S. access to certain data held in the Austrian police databases. Previously the U.S. had threatened to exclude Austria from the "Visa Waiver Programme" (VWP) and to re-establish the visa requirement for Austrian citizens. In a letter, the U.S. imposed the deadline of 31 December 2010 to reach an agreement with the Austrian authorities on VWP and access to Austrian databases."
