150 new border guards to be stationed in Northern Greece


Up to 150 new border guards have been recruited for two northern Greek police directorates, according to a report by Ekathimerini.

The Greek Migration and Asylum Ministry and the European Union co-financed the recruitment with funds from the Border Management Fund – Border Management and Visa Instrument (2021-27).

The new border guards will be sent to police directorates in Rodopi and Kavala, located in Northern Greece.

Previous finance from the National Program of the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and the EU’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund sent 800 border guards to the North and South Aegean regional units.

At current, 250 border guards have been sent to the regional unit of Evros, one of the largest regional units of Greece which includes the island of Samothrace.

Around 480 guards have also been located in pre-departure detention centres in Greece including Xanthi, Amygdaleza, Tavros and Drama
