The first meeting of the SEPEB Sub-group took place in Berlin on 7-8 May 2009.

Following recommendations in 2008 from the Project Group “Development of a Concept for Consolidating, Updating and Publishing SEPE”, the Governing Board agreed that a survey should be developed to give an overview of the types of courses and Bologna related programmes offered by national police training institutes to foreign police officers in 2009.

The group was assigned to the Research and Science Working Group who formed the SEPEB Sub-group following the Governing Board decision. The Sub-group is made up of four experts from Portugal (Chair), Italy, Germany and an expert from the AEPC (Association of European Police Colleges).

At the first meeting, the group discussed and worked on important issues surrounding a survey project, including:

  • The best possible strategy and procedures of data collection;
  • What items should be included (including the precise wording of questions);
  • The way the data should be analysed and presented;
  • The timeframe and available resources.

The main work priorities were identified by the group as where the online survey would physically be hosted and an introduction letter to all Member States and AEPC countries. The Sub-group is due to meet again later in the year.
