On the way towards a CEPOL Master programme...


From 5 to 9 December 2011, the French Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Police hosted the 3d module of the « policing in Europe » course, a new programme which intends to blend academic and professional learning and pave the way to a future diploma on international police cooperation.

This course has been developed by the CEPOL secretariat, together with 4 partner training institutes:

  • The Academia de Oficiales (Guardia Civil) of Aranjuez in Spain;
  • The Deutsche Hochschule der Polizei of Münster -Hiltrup in Germany;
  • The Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Police of Saint-Cyr-au-Mont-D'Or in France.
  • The Politieacademie of Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.

The 2 first modules were organised in Spain and Germany. After each module, the participants worked out an essay from a chosen assignment.
Hélène Martini, director of the French National Police College ENSP, has welcomed the 21 participants from 12 EU member States, Europol, Iceland and Turkey who took part in this 3d module mainly dedicated to information exchange and communication mechanism under the headline « cooperation and communication ».

8 lecturers, magistrates, senior officials, lawyers and senior police officers contributed to this learning activity, providing input on various topical and horizontal matters such as the EU internal security policy, Joint Investigation Teams, civilian crisis planning and management, PCCCs, legal grounds for international exchanges of information, data protection etc..
The lectures alternated with workshops and a working visit to the Command and Coordination Centre of Interpol. On this occasion, the participants were presented the I-24/7 information system of Interpol and the global Disaster Victim Identification process.

Besides this intensive programme, the participants improved their skills by practicing the “Boule Lyonnaise”, and enjoyed very much to visit the City of Lyon, wrapped in lights for the renowned “Fête des Lumières” of 8 December.

All members of the international team of the ENSP headed by Jean Marie Fiquet were highly praised for the success of this 3d CEPOL module. We may say an “innovative” CEPOL team, as “Policing in Europe” is the third CEPOL “pilot” activity hosted by the ENSP during year 2011, after the first SCHENGEN evaluation course and the first CEPOL conference on urban violence.
