19 April 2022 to 06 May 2022

The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance the knowledge of law enforcement officials on the impact of the digital technology on the modus operandi of human traffickers, to improve their digital skills to identify victims and to detect and investigate cases of trafficking in human beings.

The course is targeting practitioners and will have a strong focus on the detection and investigation of human trafficking committed online, including dedicated sessions on the use of OSINT and tracking digital money flows.

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 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 2 hours 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.

A couple of scheduled/synchronous events are foreseen where learners are all recommended to attend, such as the kick off webinar delivered on day 1.

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: 21 March 2022.

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

CEPOL recently published the European Union Strategic Training needs Assessment (EU-STNA) that defines strategic level training priorities for law enforcement officials across Europe, for the current EMPACT cycle 2022-2025. The EU-STNA 2022-2025 process has revealed eight core capability gaps constituting the main areas in which law enforcement officials need to be trained.

Furthermore, it has identified 230 training needs, prioritised by Member States clustered in 17 thematic areas as well as 9 other specific training needs included under a separate category. It has to be noted that the core capability gaps are relevant for all thematic areas of training. In addition, for the first time Member States indicated that at present 110 368 law enforcement officials across the EU would need EU-level training in the areas presented in this report.

The webinar will present the outcomes of the EU-STNA and the way of its implementation by external stakeholders of CEPOL.
