CEPOL's Executive Director at the Justice and Home Affairs Council
03 December 2019

'Digitalisation is one of the key elements addressed by CEPOL's training portfolio and it is critical to invest more attention and resources in this area, to keep the EU safe.'

- argued CEPOL's Executive Director Dr. h. c. Detlef Schröder during the discussions on the future of EU Internal Security at the Justice and Home Affairs Council, yesterday in Brussels.

'The amount of data which law enforcement officers are confronted on daily basis grows rapidly and requires specific skills and competences. Training has to be carried out on e-evidence, digital forensics, cyber investigation techniques and the new inter-operable IT systems.'

– underlined CEPOL's Executive Director.

In June 2019, the European Agency for Law Enforcement Training has opened CEPOL Cybercrime Academy, to facilitate digital training for law enforcement experts in the area.
