2.17.Special types of search

2.17.1.Geographically targeted search

A geographically targeted search is a search carried out in a situation where a Member State has firm evidence of the whereabouts of a wanted person or object within a restricted geographical area. In such circumstances a request from the judicial authority may be executed immediately upon receipt.

Geographically targeted searches in the Schengen area shall take place on the basis of an alert in the SIS II. If the whereabouts are known when issuing an alert for arrest, field 061 of the A Form shall include the information on whereabouts of the wanted person. In all other cases, including for communicating the whereabouts of objects, the M form (field 83) shall be used. An alert for the wanted person shall be entered in the SIS II to ensure that a request for action to be taken is immediately enforceable (Article 64 of the Schengen Convention, Article 9(3) of the Framework decision on EAW).

An alert in the SIS II increases the chances of success should the person or object move unexpectedly from one place to another within the Schengen area, so the non-entering of a wanted person or object into SIS II is possible only in special circumstances (e.g. in accordance with Article 23(1) of the SIS II Regulation and SIS II Decision if there is not enough information to create an alert, etc.).
