EU: New research resources available on undercover policing

Support our work: become a Friend of Statewatch from as little as £1/€1 per month.

The Undercover Research Group (URG) has launched a new website, with the aim of "enhancing public understanding of political policing and undercover surveillance".

The pages have been published to coincide with Domestic Extremist Awareness Day, launched by the UK-based Network for Police Monitoring.

The Awareness Day seeks to encourage campaigners "to find out if secret records are held about them by making subject access requests to the Metropolitan Police's National Domestic Extremism and Disorder Intelligence Unit."

The information published by the URG includes in-depth information on the European Cooperation Group on Undercover Activities, the UK's National Domestic Extremism Unit, profiles of individual undercover officers and more.
