54/2021: Training on Police Information Exchange for SPOC
11 October 2021 to 22 October 2021

The aim of the training activity is to enhance information exchange between law enforcement authorities in the Member States as well as cooperation and exchange of knowledge on innovative methods and techniques regarding the daily information exchange via Single Points of Contact (SPOC).

The activity will focus on identifying different models of SPOC in each Member State as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for international police cooperation, operating 24/7; relevant guidelines and manual for international law enforcement cooperation and information exchange; difficulties/challenges faced by countries when using the SPOCs; key elements of existing tools; information flow between designated contact points and data protection provisions.

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

  • Independent Learning: reviewing case studies, watching webinars and short videos, studying reading material (18 hours);
  • Contact Learning: live webinars and live session, group work, forum discussion with other participants, exchange of good practice (8 hours);
  • Experiential Learning: a simulated case exercise is provided in the end of the activity which needs to be analysed by participants (4 hours).

Participant should be available for the live webinars and live session, according to the course programme and 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 minimum 2 hours investment / working day from the attending participant during the length of three weeks.

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), hence the physical presence of participants will not be required. Participants will need to complete the registration procedure in LEEd in order to get access to the course page.
