The aim of the training activity is to improve the collection, evaluation, collation, analysis, and distribution of information for the purpose of tackling all forms of crime.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of law enforcement officers to integrate OSINT tools into cyber investigations.

Upon completion of the course, the participants are expected to be able to:

  • Provide a comprehensive overview on the main work processes and general techniques that are necessary for the accomplishment of Law Enforcement OSINT;
  • Make an overview about Law Enforcement OSINT approach;
  • Explore the information available in various open sources;
  • Enhance the use of general OSINT techniques suitable for the collection of intelligence;
  • Strengthen the investigative methods, analysis, and distribution of information for the purpose of tackling all forms of crimes in clear web, social media, and dark web.

While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously. Completion of the course would require around 1.5 hours’ investment / working day from the attending participants during the length of 4 weeks.

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 online course offers 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: 27 October 2020.

Selected participants have to be registered to CEPOL's online Law Enforcement Education platform LEEd where the online activity will take the place.
