CEPOL Executive Director, Dr. h.c. Detlef Schröder, participated last week at the European Police Chiefs Convention (EPCC) organised by Europol in The Hague (The Netherlands). This event is the most significant law enforcement convention taking place in the European Union.

Co-hosted by the Slovenian National Police in the context of Slovenia's Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the EPCC covered serious and organised crime and terrorism, and its manifestations and infiltration within European society.

Police chiefs and high-level representatives from the EU Member States and European and international organisations, including CEPOL, exchanged assessments of current and emerging criminal threats, challenges and opportunities across three panels and hundreds of bilateral and multilateral meetings. In their conclusions, the police chiefs addressed the issues of international police cooperation, emerging threats arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, and policing in a digital world.

In the margins of the event, CEPOL Executive Director held a bilateral meeting with the Icelandic delegation to discuss how to strengthen the cooperation between Iceland and the agency and maximise synergies in the field of education and training for law enforcement officials.
