    RUSSELS, Belgium [7.24.98] (Reuters) - The European Union has 
    no plans to set up a "cyberpolice" force to counter any threat 
    hackers may pose to the bloc's computer networks, according to 
    a statement published onhe EU was looking at ways to ensure 
    "efficient public protection, in particular against the use of 
    telecommunications for the benefit of criminal organizations."
    The Commission has already carried out a study into criminality 
    linked to high-technology.
    "The findings and eventual follow-up of this study are currently 
    under discussion in the Commission," Gradin said.
    Gradin's remarks were contained in a written answer, dated 
    July 16, to a question from Gerhard Hager, a member of the 
    European Parliament. Hager had asked the EU to comment on 
    reports the United States was considering setting up a 
    force to counter hackers.
