08 September 2015

On Thursday 4 September CEPOL held its yearly Stakeholders Meeting at its Headquarters in Budapest, Hungary. Representatives from the European Commission, the EU Justice and Home Affairs agencies EUROPOL, EMCDDA, eu-LISA and FRONTEX, together with CEPOL’s key partners such as the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN), PCC SEE and OSCE attended the meeting. Mr. Christian Gatti, Chair of the CEPOL Governing Board, Dr. Ferenc Bánfi, Director of the Agency, and the Head of the Strategic Affairs Unit, Dr. Stefano Failla, welcomed the participants.

CEPOL's Stakeholders Meeting

CEPOL’s success as a service provider for law enforcement training is firmly anchored in its close cooperation with stakeholders. This has been, and continues to be, the key to success in the organisation of training activities for EU law enforcement officers on cross-cutting issues in the internal security field such as cybercrime, drug trafficking or counter-terrorism.

CEPOL's Stakeholders Meeting

Participants explored expectations and cooperation opportunities for CEPOL's 2017 Annual Work Programme, the new horizons stemming from CEPOL's renewed legal basis and enhanced target group, the JHA Training Coordination and the European Law Enforcement Training scheme. Stakeholders took part in thematic workshops that covered training coordination and the assessment of strategic training needs.

CEPOL's Stakeholders Meeting

Participants reiterated that the security of European Union citizens can only be granted through the cooperation of police and judicial authorities, EU bodies and other relevant organisations, and that cooperation is now more necessary than ever. Participants also acknowledged CEPOL’s role in the progress achieved in training EU law enforcement officers on cross-border issues in the recent years, and agreed to send concrete training activity proposals for 2017 to CEPOL by November 2015.
