European Police Exchange Programme
21 January 2014

CEPOL, the European Police College, has launched the European Police Exchange Programme (EPEP) 2014.

This flagship CEPOL activity offers senior police officers and experts, senior police leaders, police trainers, researchers and participants the opportunity to take part in a bilateral exchange with a colleague from another Member State or candidate country. For the second year running, the Exchange Programme will also be offered to police officers and personnel from European Neighbourhood Policy Countries including the Eastern Partnership countries, the Western Balkan states and Turkey. In 2013, 444 participants took part in an exchange.

All topics covered by the Exchange Programme have been identified by CEPOL as priority areas and most have a European or cross-border dimension. In 2014, there are 11 priority areas: EU Policy Cycle instruments and priorities, other organised crime, counter-terrorism, economic crime, law enforcement techniques, EU cooperation, management, fundamental rights, crime prevention, learning and training as well as research and science.

To take part in an exchange, participants must have a minimum of three years’ work experience in the field of interest and must speak at least one foreign language. They will preferably be new to the Exchange Programme and must commit to cascading their newly gained knowledge to colleagues at a national and European level.

Police staff interested in taking part in the 2014 European Police Exchange Programme should review the user guide and contact their National Exchange Coordinator (details available in the user guide). The deadline for applications is 28 February 2014.
