The Poles were officially welcomed by the Hungarian interior minister Sandor Pinter and police general Karoly Papp.
During joint patrols with their Hungarian partners, the Poles will have the task of stopping illegal attempts by migrants to enter the country, and securing public law and order.
They have been entrusted with monitoring a 20 kilometre-wide strip inside Hungarian territory along the Serbian border.
The Polish border guards’ mission in Hungary is to last until 3 December. (ss/nh/rk)
