The European Commission published last week a proposal to boost CEPOL's role as the European Agency for Law Enforcement training, by providing better and more effective tools to train EU law enforcement officials.

The aim of the proposal is to guarantee that CEPOL can adapt its training to this ever-evolving environment, making available for example, training tools and initiatives in areas such as fighting cybercrime, trafficking in drugs and trafficking in human beings.

The proposal is in line with the decision taken recently by the European Parliament and the Council to move CEPOL to Budapest. The Bramshill site in the United Kingdom - where CEPOL is currently located - is due to be closed in September 2014.
