Annual National Exchange Coordinators' meeting takes place at CEPOL
03 December 2019

The annual National Exchange Coordinators' meeting of the CEPOL Exchange Programme (CEP) is currently taking place at CEPOL Headquarters.

After a record number of applications (over 1100), more than 600 law enforcement officials from 41 participating countries (including 13 non-EU) took part this year in the CEPOL’s flagship Exchange Programme (CEP), including the General Exchange Programme, the CEPOL-Frontex Joint Exchange Programme and both Project-led Exchange programmes (Western Balkan Financial Investigations and CT2 Counter-Terrorism). This Erasmus-style initiative allows participants to spend one week with a counterpart in their country, exchanging knowledge and good practices, initiating cooperation projects and fostering deep and long-lasting learning and networking opportunities.

This year's annual meeting is jointly organised with the CEPOL Project Management Unit and for the first time we welcomed Exchange Programme Coordinators and Project Contact Points from MENA countries to meet together with all EU Member States, Western Balkan Countries, Eastern Partnership Countries and Candidate Countries.

The key points of the agenda is the evaluation of this year’s progress and the outlook for the upcoming 2020 edition. A half-day workshop is also being organised on proposals on how to further increase the efficiency of the Exchange Programme.

Law enforcement staff interested in taking part in the CEPOL Exchange Programme can contact their National Exchange Coordinator through their CEPOL National Unit. The applications for the 2020 edition of the programme will be open from beginning of January until the end of February 2020.
