CEPOL EU Law Enforcement Leadership Development - Future Leaders, Module 1 started at the campus of Police University College in Tampere, Finland, on Monday 11 October. The course lasted for five days and the participants were discussing and learning different aspects of leadership.

The first presentation was delivered by Superintendent Pasi Kemppainen. He began by asking members of the group why there was a need for transnational policing. This brought a selection of ideas, based on the ideas that criminals do not respect national borders. There is a need to disrupt and fight organised crime and terrorism, as well to manage mega-events, search for missing persons, deal with natural and man-made disasters. Pasi explained also relevant milestones of the EU instruments and legislation development in the field of internal and external security. It is crucial to know your history when heading to future.

“Before Covid came in, people were moving around more than they did decades ago, and criminals are doing the same. They can communicate more easily and create new types of criminality – such as hacking, spamming and phishing. So, it is crucial for law enforcement authorities to keep up to date on the latest technological innovations as well and have leadership skills to use in efficient way” Pasi explained.
