On Monday 3 December 2012, Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner for Home Affairs visited CEPOL – the European Police College, in Bramshill.

During the visit, Commissioner Malmström met with the Director and members of the Governing Board to discuss the agency’s tasks and activities. She also met with agency staff.

‘Training for law enforcement officers is of paramount importance to ensure that police forces across Europe have the capacity and skills to deal with the ever-evolving nature of cross-border crime and threats. The training and learning activities developed by CEPOL helps strengthen police cooperation and capacity’ said Mrs Malmström.

Dr Banfi, Director of CEPOL, added ‘It was a pleasure to welcome the Commissioner to our agency. The Commissioner’s interest in our work demonstrates the significance of law enforcement training for the home affairs agenda and overall internal security of the EU.’
