Further training offers of the Central European Police Academy

Dear reader,

The training courses of the Central European Police Academy could unfortunately not be implemented as planned in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Therefore we will offer seminar topics from this year again in 2021, where there was a great interest in applicants. For the third and fourth quarters of 2021, it is planned that CEPA will organize the main course on "Prevention and Control of Internationally Relevant Crime" and the special course on "Cross-border Cooperation in Compensatory Measures and Border Police Tasks". In addition to these two courses, we intend to offer again several seminars on criminal and border police topics. The CEPA's activities in 2021 will again include visits to police departments. The final catalog of activities for the coming year will be published at the end of the year.
