Customs Investigation Bureau (Germany)

The German Customs Investigation Bureau in Cologne (Zollkriminalamt, ZKA) and its investigation offices are federal agencies that fall under the German Finance Ministry. The ZKA coordinates customs investigations nationwide in particular monitoring foreign trade, uncovering violations of EU market regulations, illegal technology exports, subsidy fraud in the agricultural sector, drug trafficking and money laundering.

In reaction to increasing violence, its Zentrale Unterst├╝tzungsgruppe Zoll (ZUZ) was formed in 1997 as the customs police tactical unit for use when regular officers would be in too much danger.
