On 27 May 2015, a delegation from the PCC SEE Thematic Working Group on Police Education and Training visited CEPOL’s Headquarters. The group met this week in Budapest to identify needs for development of competences and skills in the field of police cooperation.

The Police Cooperation Convention for Southeast Europe (PCC SEE) entered into force in 2007 to improve strategic police cooperation in this region. In recent years, CEPOL and the PCC SEE have worked together to organise training activities on topics such as Joint Investigation Teams and organised crime in Western Balkan countries. They also closely collaborate on the assessment of training needs for law enforcement officers.

The delegation was headed by Ms. Nevenka Tomovič, representative of the PCC SEE Secretariat and Mr. Istvan Magyar, chair of the Working Group and member of the current Hungarian Chairmanship of the Convention. Detlef Schröder, CEPOL’s deputy director, demonstrated during the visit the growing demand for training in the law enforcement area and presented the agency’s strategic response to this demand.

Mr Schröder stressed that “organised crime is a common security threat both for the EU and its neighbouring countries. We believe that regional, multilateral cooperation is key to address cross-border crime. We are strongly committed to continue our successful cooperation with PCC SEE through the implementation of residential and online training activities and we are aiming at an increased participation from Western Balkan countries in the European Police Exchange Programme”.
