On 19 November, CEPOL’s Head of Operations, Ms Mailis Pukonen attended a meeting of the Standing Committee on Operational Cooperation on Internal Security (COSI) in Brussels. The future of EU Internal Security and Law Enforcement training were key topics of discussion.

Ms Pukonen emphasised that

Training is not a self-standing item but it is closely interlinked with technological development, information management etc. Appropriate resources are needed to effectively implement any new tasks.

She has also informed the participants that there will be a next EU Strategic Training Needs Assessment cycle (EU STNA 2022-2025) as well, which will form the foundation for further planning on training of the law enforcement. Thematic areas described in the EU STNA and Operational Training Needs Analysis (OTNAs) should be prioritised and focus should be put on: cybercrime, counterterrorism, drugs, trafficking in human beings (THB), financial crime, interoperability and new IT systems.
