CEPOL renews Working Arrangement with Iceland
02 September 2021

A revised Working Arrangement between the National Police Commissioner of Iceland and the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Training (CEPOL) was concluded on Wednesday, 1 September 2021.

Both the European Union and Iceland have a mutual interest in enhancing the effectiveness of their law enforcement in the fight against crime, especially cross-border crime. These goals can be reached by cooperation in common training for law enforcement officials, by raising awareness and increasing knowledge of international and European cooperation instruments and mechanisms, as well as collaboration in a range of specific subjects, such as counter-terrorism, trafficking in narcotics and organised crime, illegal immigration and border control, or trafficking in human beings.

The Working Arrangement between CEPOL and Iceland is also important due to Iceland’s associated membership in the Schengen Area and its participation in the related forms of cross-border law enforcement cooperation.

Iceland is a valued partner of CEPOL since the signature of a Cooperation Agreement in 2010 and Icelandic experts are regularly engaged in the implementation of online and residential activities. We are also delighted to see that a growing number of Icelandic law enforcement officials attend CEPOL training activities.
