At a meeting, which coincided with a State visit to the UK by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the incoming French CEPOL Presidency team visited CEPOL Secretariat on 26-28 March 2008. France takes over the EU Presidency from Slovenia on 1 July 2008.

Members of the team: Emile Perez (second from left), Jean-Marc Milliot (centre), Pascale Allisse (left), Olivier Pic (second from right) and Laurent Leclercq (right) met with staff members of CEPOL Secretariat over the two-day visit to prepare for the work that will take place during the French CEPOL Presidency and familiarise themselves with the ongoing work carried out at the Secretariat.

Emile Perez, Director of the French National Police Training Department and future Chair of the CEPOL Governing Board, said: “It is always very useful to gather the people working in different parts of Europe in the CEPOL network together. That is the way to implement the vision of CEPOL on a day-to-day basis. During the French Presidency, we will not only concentrate on the French priorities in the fight against crime and terrorism, but also concentrate on implementing those priorities through training activities created within the CEPOL network at a European level. We think that CEPOL is, and must at the same time stay, a network and the cornerstone of police training in Europe.”
