CEPOL (the European Police College) is a decentralised European Union Agency established in 2005 with a mission to bring together senior police officers from police forces in Europe — essentially to support the development of a network — and encourage cross-border cooperation in the fight against crime, public security and law and order by organising training activities and research.
Since November 2008, the EMCDDA and CEPOL have worked together closely, with the EMCDDA contributing to several workshops and conferences organised by the MS on behalf of CEPOL.
The EMCDDA provides contribution to CEPOL training activities on the EMCDDA itself, European drug markets and new psychoactive substances (NPS).While CEPOL contributes with its knowledge and network to the EMCDDA work on developing drug supply indicators as set out in the Council Conclusions on improving the monitoring of drug supply in the European Union and will provide access to their e-learning environment.
The EMCDDA plans to formalise cooperation with CEPOL in the near future, through the signature of a cooperation agreement.
