Joint Investigation Teams: a success story

“After one day in Lyon, I can neither distinguish who are the police officer and who are the judges nor from which countries they are. We all have a common goal: to work together and get the best result and it is a really a good experience in my career!". (Comment on the spot from one expert of the JIT seminar)

28 senior police officers and 15 magistrates representing 21 Member States participated in the last Joint Investigation Teams seminar hosted by the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Police (France) from 28 March to 1st April 2011.

13 experts from The Council, Eurojust, Europol, Olaf, Interpol, the European Judicial Training Network and 5 Member States were involved during the week.
Working visits and case studies, feedback from practitioners of Joint Investigation, and comprehensive information on financing offered the participants a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge and willingness to use JITs as a key instrument for cross border investigations.

During the closing ceremony, Hélène Martini, director of the ENSP and Detlef Schröder, deputy director of CEPOL recalled that the organisers used the EU motto «Unity in diversity”, to illustrate the distinct European character of the Joint Investigation Teams seminar, and as an exemplification of how can CEPOL activities contribute to strengthening European resilience to Crime and foster a proactive law enforcement agenda.

Special thanks to all who contributed in this joint success story of CEPOL and the European Judicial Training Network.
