CEPOL Executive Director meets Finnish authorities in Tampere and Helsinki
29 October 2018

On 24 October, CEPOL Executive Director, Mr Detlef Schröder, visited the Police University College of Finland in Tampere and had fruitful discussions with Mr Kimmo Himberg, Rector, and his management team regarding strategical developments and new possible ways of cooperation, as well as other important topics related to law enforcement training.

On 25 October Mr Schröder had the opportunity to meet the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Interior of Finland, Mr Ilkka Salmi, Director General Mr Risto Lammi, and Police Director Ms Hannele Taavila.

Visiting Ms Sanna Heikinheimo, Deputy National Police Commissioner of the National Police Board, detailed discussions took place regarding the identified training needs, as well as the interoperability of EU information systems.

Taking into consideration that in July 2019 Finland will take over the Presidency of the EU Council (together with Romania and Croatia), the meetings gave a good opportunity for exchanging views regarding CEPOL’s special role in law enforcement training on European level cooperation.
