SELEC’s 25th anniversary

SELEC celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2024.

There are many people who have contributed to each line of SELEC’s success story throughout the years. We would like to express our gratitude to each and every person who has been part of our organization from past to present.

The law enforcement agencies of the Member States and Operational Partners (Interpol, Italian Republic, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Slovak Republic, UK National Crime Agency (NCA), His Majesty’s Revenue & Customs of the United Kingdom and United States of America) have strengthened SELEC with their presence and active involvement in operational activities. By virtue of their determination and commitment to fight against transnational organized crime, SELEC has become one of the most significant international law enforcement organizations in Southeast Europe.

We will continue to move forward with the same enthusiasm and determination, and look forward to even greater success in the years ahead!

Logo contest

With this occasion we launched a contest among our law enforcement colleagues for designing the 25th anniversary logo. The Commission established for this purpose selected the logo created by Mr. Nikola Dimitrov Tabakov/Bulgaria as the SELEC’s 25th anniversary logo that will be used throughout the year.
