Berlin: New counterterrorism centre by 2020

The State Government of Berlin is creating a new counterterrorism centre by 2020 as a reaction to severe internal problems while and after the 2016 Christmas market terror attack.

I think this is a positive step in the right direction and I’ll follow the further developments regarding these plans!

Update: The Berlin Senate approved in June 2018 the financing of EUR 125 million for the new counterterrorism centre. Current problems regarding the new building are concerning mainly the safety and security of the staff that is supposed to work there from 2020 onwards.
