Today, Mr. Dirk Dubois, Head of the European Security Defence College (ESDC), visited CEPOL’s Headquarters. The purpose of the visit was to discuss further cooperation between CEPOL and the ESDC.

The European Security Defence College provides civilian and military personnel with training on the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). In the past CEPOL has successfully delivered training activities on civilian crisis management, such as the SPOPCOP three-week residential course, as well as short-term courses on advisory work at CSDP missions or human rights and policing. In 2014, CEPOL and the ESDC jointly organised in Austria a course on the strategic planning process of EU missions and operations.

At the meeting CEPOL staff presented the agency’s training portfolio, including its residential courses, e-learning resources, European Police Exchange Programme and new Master Programme. The renewed TOPSPOC course on international police cooperation and the strategic goals of the agency were also discussed.
