Meeting of the Police Academies
Conduct of standardised training on PCC SEE related matters is one of the key recommendations endorsed by the Committee of Ministers. The Meeting of the Police Academies, which took place from 7 till 9 April 2010 in Sofia, presented an opportunity to discuss various issues regarding the curricula of the Police Academies and execution of trainings in specific areas.
The PCC SEE Secretariat proposed to the Committee of Ministers, on 17 November 2009, to incorporate the PCC SEE into the curricula of the Contracting Parties’ Police Academies and to carry out training in specific areas in cooperation with EU and international experts.
The participants discussed the Strategy paper regarding the conduct of standardised training on PCC SEE related matters and gave concrete proposals for its content. A state by state approach on the existing training programmes in the Contracting Parties, as well as international organizations, were give an insight on the state of play. Other topics, such as burden sharing, division of PCC SEE related matters and the establishment of a long term sustainable system, have been deliberated.
