We are pleased to inform you that as a result of the cooperation with the ICT4COP research project, a new 3rd party online module, titled "Community oriented policing and post conflict police reform", is now available for registered users of CEPOL's e-learning platform, LEEd.

The content of the module has been designed by the Norwegian Police University College in cooperation with the research consortium partners and the network of international police experts (PEN) of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 research project.

The ICT4COP research project commenced on 1 June, 2015, following a five-year grant from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. Understanding human security in post-conflict areas is at the core of this project. Where conventional, top-down police reforms fail, Community Oriented Policing (COP) holds promise – but also entails challenges. A clear ambition for the project is to analyse both differences and commonalities in community-oriented policing in very different post-conflict societies, to better inform development and security policy, reform processes, and training and education.

The aim of this online module is to help international police advisors facilitating an interactive process of co-creation between themselves, host-police, community actors and international actors present and involved in Community Oriented Policing (COP), to promote and maintain human security.

After taking the module learners will have an understanding of:

  • The concept of Community Oriented Policing;
  • The framework of the programme based on its structured approach;
  • The context of Community Oriented Policing; advantages, challenges and recommendations.

Learning outcomes:

  • To increase awareness and knowledge of COP initiatives; value of, strengths and challenges with the approach;
  • To build competencies and skills necessary to prepare for, co-create and institutionalise COP;
  • To increase willingness to engage with and co-create sustainable COP initiatives in post-conflict areas;
  • To foster a learning COP community using reflection and shared learning.

Target group:

International police advisors working with Post-Conflict Police Reform and Human security.
