A small delegation from the Austrian Gesellschaft der Gendarmerie-Polizei freunde Kärnten (Society of the gendarmerie and police friends in Carinthia) was recently a guest at the Headquarters of the European Gendarmerie Force (EUROGENDFOR) in the “General Chinotto barracks” in Vicenza. The EUROGENDFOR Commander, the Dutch colonel from the Royal Marechaussee Cornelis Kees Kuijs, and his staff received the Carinthian guests and gave them a very exhaustive overview of the brief but successful history of EUROGENDFOR. During the informative briefing the EUROGENDFOR Commander stressed the main features and capabilities of the Force and its added value in the field of crisis management, especially highlighting the present and past operational commitments of EUROGENDFOR under the aegis of all the major international organizations (EU, NATO and UN).
After the meeting, the guests were entertained by the senior representatives of the participating countries that provided the visitors with some additional and more specific information regarding the forces participating in the EUROGENDFOR initiative (the French Gendarmerie Nationale, the Italian Carabinieri, the Dutch Koninklijke Marechaussee, the Portuguese Guarda Nacional Republicana, the Romanian Jandarmeria Română and the Spanish Guardia Civil).
