The learning strategy is focused on enhancing the capacity of European law enforcement officers to deal with management of child sex offenders.

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

  • Online Contact Learning: daily live online sessions, group assignments, forum tasks, discussion with other participants, exchange of good practice (11 hours)
  • Independent Learning: reviewing study material ( e.g. case studies, watching webinars and short videos) (11 hours)

Since this will be hybrid course, meaning the course format is a combination of live sessions and self-study; participants shall be available for daily live webinar sessions to complete the course tasks.

This is important, as the participants will need to exchange their ideas with other experts and participants virtually. In addition, the participants shall complete small tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks be-tween each other and discuss them collectively. Completion of the course would require approximately 5 hours study time per day (this includes already the 3 hours daily live sessions).

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level).

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 entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd) and daily live sessions will be delivered via GoToTraining, hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.

15 December 2021

Illicit trade of cigarettes is an ongoing criminal phenomenon in Europe heavily affecting all EU Member States and neighbouring countries.

According to the empty pack survey results of KPMG Project Sun the total volume of contraband and counterfeit of cigarettes amounted to 34,2 billion sticks in 2020 which was 7.8 % of the total cigarette consumption in the EU. These figures give a reason to worry. During the last ten years on the EU level the ratio as well as the total amount of illegally consumed cigarettes had been gradually decreasing. Though at the level of Member States from year to year the picture was more varied, on the European level the overall trend had been steadily positive. Last year figures however show a change in the trend and it is clear that the reversal is caused by the rapid increase of illegal cigarette manufacturing within the EU. Covid-19 restrictions did not stop illegal flows but on the other hand impacted law enforcement operative capacities.

While there are more and more illegal factories set up by organised crime groups within Europe the traditional smuggling of “cheap whites” through the Eastern border also continues though with lower intensity. This webinar is aiming to cover these two forms of cigarette crime by demonstrating crime patterns and the related investigative and border management practice through case examples from the Irish customs investigation (covering illegal manufacturing) and Polish border guard services (discussing smuggling from Belarus, Ukraine, Russia).
