The Executive Director of the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL), Detlef Schröder met with the high-level Lithuanian law-enforcement officials to discuss the Agency’s recent findings in Vilnius on November 22nd.

CEPOL’s report on the Strategic Training Needs Assessment (EU-STNA) scheduled for discussions with the EU Member States in the Council for this week was a vital topic of the meeting with Vice-Minister of Interior, Česlovas Mulma, the Police Commissioner General, Linas Pernavas and the Deputy Police Commissioner General and CEPOL Management Board member, Rimantas Bobinas.

‘The report identifies core capability gaps relating to information exchange and transnational cooperation, and on cross-cutting training thematic categories. Addressing them is a necessity to strengthen EU’s response to internal security threats’ - underlined CEPOL’s ED during the meeting.

The head of the Agency also had a chance to express his appreciation of Lithuania’s outstanding involvement in CEPOL’s activities, pointing out the accomplishments of the European Joint Master Programme’s module organised by Mykolas Romeris University.

Assessing training needs of Lithuania’s law enforcement services and diagnosing the country’s expectations towards CEPOL’s portfolio of activities were an important element if this exchange.
