21 April 2021

22 April 2021

The overall objective of this webinar is to raise attention on fraudulent schemes committed by directors, employees, agents or subsidiaries of companies/corporate bodies. The training event will demonstrate contemporary corporate crime patterns in the EU furthermore Irish police experts from the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement will share their experience on effective enforcement practices. Ireland is hosting the European or global headquarters of several multinational corporations including US tech giants therefore the Irish experience is particularly relevant in this field.

Corporate fraud is as old as civilisation itself, however the complexity and the exponential interlinkage of global economy makes the world more vulnerable to fraudster schemes than ever. Corporate crime may occur on many levels. Global scale frauds causing multi-billion euro damages naturally receive huge public and political attention and can destabilise the whole economic and political system (e.g. Enron, Parmalat, Arthur Andersen recently or historically the Mississippi company). Fraudsters at international / national level target company assets, EU funds, public procurements and cause significant – often multi-million euro – direct financial damage to hundreds, thousands of victims. These large-scale fraud schemes also cause remarkable indirect damage by undermining fair market competition and shaking the public trust in the corporate world and state policies. Smaller scale frauds might not have that overall effect but still impoverish and bankrupt decent citizens depriving them from their life-savings.

Corporate crime is typically well-organised, multifaceted, white-collar and cross-border phenomenon with strong links with international money laundering. Investigation of insider trade, investment fraud, manipulation of stock market, embezzlement of funds, misrepresentation of data require complex skill-set from law enforcement and cooperation with specialised expert witnesses. Hopefully, this training event will contribute to the knowledge building and the formulation of a formal/informal EU network that can enhance EU wide intelligence sharing and enforcement in this critical field.

Online Course 5/2021: Money Laundering 12 April 2021 to 30 April 2021

The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance knowledge on the application of financial investigative techniques in combating serious crime.

The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of European law enforcement officers to integrate financial investigations into general crime investigations. The activity will focus on sharing knowledge on money laundering typologies and demonstrating good national practices of the integration of financial investigations into various kind of serious crime – investigation – cases. A separate module will concentrate on the added value of cross-border cooperation instruments (Europol, Eurojust, CARIN, AMON and similar).

Topics will encompass the offshore challenge, cash collection networks, trade-based money laundering practices, money laundering techniques via virtual currencies or underground banking as well. Additionally through several examples it will be demonstrated how financial investigative approach contributes to serious crime investigations at operative level. The importance of suppressing crime enablers and the viable use of EU cooperation tools (e.g. Europol) will be also debated during the course.

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 (21 hours)
  • Contact Learning via online forums: forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practice (5 hours)
  • Experiential Learning: a simulated case exercise is provided in the end of the activity which needs to be analysed by participants (4 hours)

The course will be delivered online over a period of 3 weeks, between 12 - 30 April 2021. Participants are expected to study around 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/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively.

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.

27 April 2021

The swift and radical changes of the coronavirus pandemia and the related restrictive measures are impacting all parts of life in Europe including the criminal and addiction phenomena. While the consumption and the sale of drugs remain a constant and remarkable health and public security challenge for the European Union the landscape is – as always – changing.

How does the coronavirus impact the accessibility and use of cocaine, heroine, cannabis, amphetamines, ecstasy (MDMA) and other drugs? Are there new patterns on drug supply and drugs trafficking? How law enforcement control operations, public health measures, drug strategies had been modified during the last year? What are the possible mid-term, long-term social consequences of the pandemic situation on drug consumption? What can we learn from this radically novel situation and the ongoing change management? How EU law enforcement cooperation shall follow up the changes and what are the roles of EMCDDA and CEPOL in this context?

Alexis Goosdeel, Director of EMCDDA and Dr.h.c Detlef Schröder, Executive Director of CEPOL will respond to these questions and share their ideas and vision on these topics during the “Coffee talks – EMCDDA – 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.
