The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance knowledge on the application of criminal intelligence analysis and financial investigative techniques in combating excise fraud.

The activity will focus on describing good practices of excise related criminal intelligence analysis and investigation, will concentrate on the use of financial investigations in excise cases and a module will demonstrate the added value of EU cooperation instruments.

Topics will encompass cigarette smuggling, designer fuel fraud, alcohol smuggling, the effective use intelligence in designing strategic law enforcement response, forms of money laundering (cash collection networks, trade-based money laundering practices, virtual currencies…). Additionally, it will be demonstrated through national examples how financial investigative approach/logic shall be adopted at operative level. Finally the importance and the viable use of cross-border cooperation tools (e.g. Europol, OLAF, CARIN, CELBET) will also be debated during the course.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills. The entire activity will be carried out online hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.

No special experience is required from participants but it is important that they'll remain open-minded, active and will be willing to share their ideas/experience during the learning process.

The course will be delivered over a period of 3.5 weeks. Participants are expected to study approximately 2 hours per working day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity (in total 30 training hours). While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously on a daily basis. This is important as the attendants will need to cooperate with other participants virtually and complete small tasks then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively.

The online course offers 25-35 seats. In case you are interested to attend, please contact your local CEPOL National Unit / CEPOL National Contact Point as soon as possible. Deadline for nominations by CEPOL National Units: 9 September 2020.
