The CEPOL Exchange Programme for senior police officers and trainers is set to continue. The one-year project, co-financed by CEPOL and the European Commission's Directorate General for Justice, Freedom and Security under the framework programme “Prevention of and Fight against Crime” started this month and will run until 2010.

The Exchange Programme will have the same structure as the former CEPOL/Agis Exchange Programme implemented in 2007 and 2008.

Ebba Sverne Arvill, Chair of the Governing Board, said: “We are delighted that CEPOL is able to continue with this valuable exchange programme. The previous programme was highly successful and as the Council Decision establishing CEPOL states, CEPOL should facilitate relevant exchanges and secondments of police officers in the context of training. We hope the exchange programme will run at CEPOL for many years to come.”

Twenty-three countries will take part with 54 exchangees and 48 tutors exchanging knowledge and practice in priority topics:

  • Organised Crime (for Senior Police Officers);
  • Community Policing (for Senior Police Officers);
  • Learning Environment (for training staff).

The Exchange Programme section on CEPOL’s website has been updated to reflect the new programme. All the information can be found in the Training and Learning section.
