The main aim of the article is to present general information on THE HOUSE project. This project aims to achieve coordination in the security planning of major events in Europe and contribute towards the adoption of a common policing approach at European Union level. Having identified major events as an area in need of international coordination, the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) as project coordinator launched its global programme on major events in 2002. THE HOUSE Project is the follow-up to two previous European Commission funded projects, EU-SEC and EU-SEC II. Nowadays it involves 24 European Union Member States. Poland is represented by the Police Academy in Szczytno with the encouragement of security planners from the National Police Headquarters and the Polish Ministry of Interior. The main Polish role in the project was to host two major events: the European Football Championship, which took place in Poland and Ukraine in June-July 2012 and the CEV Euro Volley organized in September 2013. In conjunction with these events there were two study visits organized for the project task team members and "standard owners". Hopefully in the long term, the maintenance and expansion of the network of security practitioners, methodologies and technical tools will ensure the impact of The House goes far beyond major events security as it contributes to the realization of the main security priorities of the EU the Stockholm Programme and the EU Internal Security Strategy (ISS).
