BORDERPOL 2020 THEME
Each fall the General Secretariat announces the annual operational theme for BORDERPOL. These have in the past reflected issues such countering human trafficking, development of new border clearance systems, and promoting interdisciplinary cooperation between government and industry. In today's social media environment the use of hash tags is ubiquitous and necessary to promote such themes.
The theme for 2020 focuses on BORDERPOL's most important mission and purpose to promote global cooperation among like-minded organizations, law makers and front line professionals. In addition to the aforementioned it has always been carried out by our team with the aim of doing good. Therefore the operational theme for 2020 is simple and clear, BORDERPOL for good
#BORDERPOLforGood will be used on official and sanctioned publications and social media.

Short term and strategic benefits for membership in BEC may be possible in professional as well as social circles. At its most basic level, BEC will be a professional networking site.
