The aim of the training activity is to enhance cooperation on cross-border cases by using TOR-network and Darkweb and by increasing skills to find virtual currencies (VC) in the course of criminal investigations as well as to identify the existence of a VC wallet, notably in the framework of searches.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of law enforcement officers to integrate new investigative techniques 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 (10 hours);
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practices (10 hours);
  • Experiential Learning: practical exercises that need to be analysed by participants (5 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 2.5 hours’ investment / working day from the attending participants 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.


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: 23 June 2021.

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

Alcohol smuggling is carried out in various ways in the European Union. Straight smuggling under false papers or hidden in cover loads still occurs however Organised Crime Groups that infiltrate the bonded warehouse system use more sophisticated and less detectable methods. The relevant EU trade system driven by the use of Excise Movement Control System (EMCS) is designed to facilitate trade and not to identify the signs of illicit trade. Hence opportunities such as the diversion of imported mirror loads under the copy of original papers of a real shipment, false exports (outward diversion) arise.

The overall objective of this webinar is to summarise the alcohol fraud types that are based on the weaknesses of the Excise Movement Control System. Given the high excise rate currently North West Europe is the most exposed region to alcohol fraud though crime patterns that work there can be recognised elsewhere in Europe as well. Experts from Irish and UK Customs services will share their experience and knowledge on existing modus operandi but also how the fraudulent activities can be detected and investigated efficiently in the post-brexit era.
