CEPOL Exchange Programme stakeholders take stock of CEP 2018 implementation and plan the year ahead
11 December 2018

Over 500 law enforcement officials from 40 participating countries (including 12 non-EU) took part this year in the CEPOL’s flagship Exchange Programme (CEP). This Erasmus-style initiative allows law enforcement officials 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.

The National Exchange Coordinators' meeting of the CEPOL Exchange Programme (CEP) took place yesterday at CEPOL Headquarters. The assessment of this year’s edition of the programme and analysis of the new conditions for the upcoming 2019 edition were the key points of the agenda.

Also, following the successful integration of Frontex border guards exchange into the Exchange in 2018, representative of the Warsaw-based EU Agency expressed their considerations to almost double their participation in the upcoming edition.

However, the CEP is addressed to not only police or border guards but also customs and tax authorities, prosecutors and other law enforcement representatives. They all are eligible to benefit from this training tool.

#CEPOLexchange programme has 95% satisfaction rate and is open to law enforcement officers from all EU Member States, EU Candidate Countries, Western Balkan and European Neighbourhood Policy Eastern Partnership countries.

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

The applications for the 2019 edition of the programme will be open until the end of February 2019.
