CEPOL's course on EU Law Enforcement Leadership Development - Future Leaders, Module 1 started at the campus of Police University College in Tampere, Finland, on 2nd May 2022. The course lasted for five days and the 27 participants were discussing and learning different aspects of leadership.

The keynote presentation of the first day, ‘Back to Human’, was delivered by Montserrat Marín, the recently appointed Executive Director of CEPOL, who was visiting Finland from the organisation’s Budapest headquarters. Montserrat challenged delegates to give their views on a dilemma triggering diverse reactions from participants.

Jouni Kivistö-Rahnasto, Professor of Safety Risk Management at Tampere University, gave the Monday afternoon presentation on the subject of risk management. Participants played an
active role in considering what strategic and operational risks they faced. Technology, information exchange and resources were identified, as well as data security, capacity building, the reputation of the police and credibility, future officer recruitment and retention.

To discover all the details of the five day course, read here the newsletter dedicated to the first module of the Future Leaders course 2022.

The course is divided into three modules, so the participants and coaches will come together at the end of August in Vienna for the Module 2. Between the modules, the participants will work in groups on their law enforcement leadership related assignments where they can indicate their improved leadership skills. What is more, after the week in Vienna, the six groups will participate in the CEPOL Exchange Programme where the assignments will be finalised and sent to the three coaches to be assessed.
