STORY BY: FO! TEAM PHOTO: BARTEK BERA In 2000, to counter this growing problem, Polish Police established Centralne Biuro Śledcze (CBS, the Central Bu- reau of Investigation). It was merged from existing organized crime department (established in 1994) and drug enforce- ment department of Police General Headquarters (estab- lished in 1997).
