The overall objective of the training activity is to support the effective functioning of SIRENE cooperation on the basis of the SIS II legal instruments, the SIRENE Manual, the Best Practice Catalogue and the document “Data Exchange Between SIRENE (DEBS)” in order to make information exchange more efficient.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the knowledge in the areas covered under the learning outcomes for the SIRENE operators on SIS II and SIRENE work. The learning process highlights a
learner-centred approach and will accommodate interactive, participatory and practical orientated principles. The active contribution of the learner is key and all participants are expected to be ready and open to share their experience.

The activity involves didactic learning through online presentations by subject matter experts, virtual interactive and collaborative learning by group work. The learners will need to exchange ideas with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments, then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively. Moreover, preparatory assignments will be given to prepare for the activity. The course will include both pre-course and post course activities to prologue the learning process.

Participants are expected to study around 1-1.5 hour per day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity. While there is a flexibility and learners can progress at their own pace, they shall be available for completing the course tasks and follow the course continuously, on a daily basis.

After completion of the Online Course, the participant will be able to:

  1. Summarise the main procedures for all relevant articles in the SIS II legal instruments;
  2. Apply the SIRENE Manual as well as the articles of the SIS II legal instruments;
  3. Select the appropriate SIRENE forms and complete them in the correct way, following the instructions given in DEBS;
  4. Utilise the Fact Sheets following the recommendations provided by the Catalogue on Best Practice in SIS/SIRENE and use the SIRENE Platform in the CEPOL Learning Management System (LMS) in the daily work;
  5. Describe the general procedures at the level of each Member State;
  6. Identify methods of cooperating more efficiently and effectively.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd), hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.


Nomination:

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: 22 April 2021.

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


 
03 May 2021 to 30 May 2021

The aim of the training activity is to enhance cybercrime investigation by improving the collection, evaluation, collation, analysis and distribution of information for the purpose of tackling all forms of crime, in particular terrorism and organised crime and by improving intelligence collection, in qualitative and quantitative terms.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of law enforcement officers to integrate open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools into cyber investigations. The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will consist of:

  • Independent Learning: reviewing case studies, watching webinars, listening short videos, studying reading material – 21 hours;
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practices – 5 hours;
  • Experiential Learning: practical exercises that need to be analysed by participants – 4 hours.

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 (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd), hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.

17 May 2021 to 28 May 2021

The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance practitioners’ performance by sensitizing them so they are able to distinguish between open-source intelligence (OSINT) on the one hand and on the other hand fake news that can lead to extremism, including the role of social media in mobilising previously unpopular extremist movements.

Learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of European law enforcement officers, in their investigations, to introduce best practices and lessons learned to help them distinguish between OSINT on the one hand and on the other hand fake news that can lead to extremism, together with the role of social media in mobilising previously unpopular extremist movements.

The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will consist of:

  • Independent Learning: reviewing case studies, watching webinars, listening short videos (podcasts), studying reading material (25 hours)
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practices and group assignments (5 hours)

The course will be delivered online over a period of 3 weeks, between 17 - 28 May 2021. While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously. This is important as they will need to exchange their ideas with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively. Completion of the course would require 2-3 hours investment / working day from the attending participant during the length of two weeks.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd), 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 coronavirus has had a dramatic effect on our European society and drastically changed the daily routine of citizens all over the continent. The swift and radical changes heavily impacted the dynamic of organised crime and the practice of law enforcement cooperation. The recently finalised Serious and Organised Crime Threat Assessment (SOCTA 2021) of Europol summarises the key security challenges the European Union faces and set the priorities and context for law enforcement training. The further digitalisation of crime, the enhanced exploitation of legal business structures, the high complexity of money laundering schemes, the increased use of violence and the impact of corruption are just some of the features that this comprehensive analysis on EU crime underlines.

What are the tendencies in serious organised crime highlighted in SOCTA 2021 and which shifts in trends needs to be emphasized? What are the possible mid-term, long-term consequences of the pandemic situation on crime? What has been the impact of COVID-19 on law enforcement cooperation? How has Europol reacted to the changing criminal landscape? Could you name a couple of recent operations implemented during the pandemic that shall be regarded as examples? How do you consider the priorities of serious crime trainings in the EU?

Catherine De Bolle, Executive Director of Europol and Dr.hc. Detlef Schröder, Executive Director of CEPOL will respond to these questions and share their ideas and vision on this highly actual topic during the “Coffee talks – Europol – CEPOL”. The coffee talk will take a format of an informal, free-flowing intellectual dialogue between the two like-minded senior EU leaders which could easily take place over a coffee. The findings of SOCTA, the new reality of policing actualise the dialogue of the leaders of Europol and CEPOL more than ever.
