CEPOL' Executive Director Mr Detlef Schröder continues his efforts to enhance CEPOL's outreach and widen the agency's circle of partners in the European community of law enforcement agencies and policy makers.

During an event organised on Wednesday 25 April at the French Permanent Representation to the European Union in the context of the PEPSIL project, a joint endeavour by the French Gendarmerie and Spanish Guardia Civil under the auspices of the French Centre des Hautes Études du Ministère de l’Intérieur (CHEMI), the Executive Director outlined the role of CEPOL as a front line European instrument to tackle today's and tomorrow's threats to EU Security via training for the law enforcement community.

The event, attended by several Members of the European Parliament from a cross-cutting section of the political spectrum, showcased once again the interest of the legislators in the work of our agency and the importance of a truly European approach to security. Mr Schröder highlighted the mission and excellent operational results of CEPOL in support of the Member States, while reiterating the agency's commitment to European cooperation and innovation in EU level training.

The Executive Director also held meetings on the 25th and 26th of April with the acting Director General of the European Anti Fraud Office (OLAF) Mr Nicholas Ilett and the Secretary General of the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN), Judge Wojciech Postulski. The theme of both meetings was to explore and assess the already excellent cooperation between CEPOL and these bodies, and to take a look at the next steps, with a view to further extending CEPOL's support to the wider law enforcement community, in line with the CEPOL Regulation.

Mr Schröder and the Heads of both OLAF and EJTN agreed to continue working together and table new initiatives in the future to strengthen an already tried and tested partnership.
