CEPOL hosts OSCE online module to raise awareness about Intelligence-Led Policing among law enforcement officers from Central & Eastern Europe
15 September 2020

Around 30 law enforcement officials from Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia participate this week in an online module on Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) organised by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) with the support of the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL).

The purpose of this eLearning activity is to raise awareness about this modern and proactive policing model and present its practical implementation in several key areas to country police officers and law enforcement representatives from Central and Eastern Europe.

A modern law enforcement model

The OSCE has developed this online module to help law enforcement work together to share data, so that crucial information is not missed. Experience is showing that traditional methods of policing have become more challenging in this digital age. ILP is a modern law enforcement model that aims to change this. Harnessing data and information from a wide range of open and official sources to identify links, trends and patterns can help law enforcement prevent serious incidents or provides long-term insights on threats faced by the public.

The scope of ILP goes beyond its use in serious and organised crime, and can be applied to all areas of policing, from burglary or theft to addressing extreme vandalism or ensuring public safety at major events.

Participants will be introduced to the main principles of the OSCE Guidebook on ILP, which is available in ten languages (Albanian, Arabic, Bosnian, Croatian, English, Macedonian, Serbian, Russian, Spanish and French) and is actively used by law enforcement agencies and authorities as well as other international organisations both within and outside the OSCE area.​

This online training activity is taking place on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th September on CEPOL’s Learning Management System, LEEd.

CEPOL-OSCE long-standing cooperation

CEPOL and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) concluded a Working Arrangement in 2017 to strengthen cooperation between the two entities to mutually support each other in terms of training for law enforcement and capacity building.
