On 15 May, 2013 a cooperation agreement between the Centre for Police Education of the Albanian State Police and the European Police College (CEPOL) was signed in Tirana, Albania. The ceremony was attended by Mr Fintan Fanning, Chair of CEPOL’s Governing Board, Dr Ferenc Bánfi, Director of CEPOL , Mr Hysni Burgaj, Director General of the Albanian State Police, Mr Mergim Hoxha, Director of the Centre for Police Education and other officials.

The signing of the cooperation agreement increases the cooperation between CEPOL and the Centre for Police Education. Senior police officers from Albania will be able to participate in CEPOL courses and have access to CEPOL’s electronic learning platform (e-Net). Further, the Centre for Police Education will also have the possibility to contribute to CEPOL courses by supporting EU Member States to organise courses, for example by providing expert knowledge.

Dr. Bánfi said, ‘The signing of this agreement opens the door not only to cooperation between Albania and CEPOL, but also to cooperation with all the national training institutes that are part of the CEPOL network. Our partnership is based on quality and we look forward to cooperating with you not only in a teaching capacity, but also to learn from your experience.’
