Master in Police cooperation in Europe (Policing in Europe) represents a new specialization for the training of police officers and other law enforcement officers, which is supported by the European Agency CEPOL (European Agency for Police issues training) during the development of the project as well as during the delivery. The objective is to provide the police and other agents responsible for ensuring security and order in Europe of scientific tools, based on the skills and competencies they need to develop their work in a globalized world and in a changing environment as Europe has today. We are faced with a joint programme of European Master developed, under the auspices of CEPOL (European Police Training Agency), by a consortium of several European universities and Police academies. The joint programme of European Master (EJMP) aims to provide scientific and academic competence to the European Community of police practice.
This is the first EU academic programme aimed at focusing on the common challenges for police cooperation in the context of European internal security. The EJMP will contribute greatly to the establishment of a European police practice community in which, professionals with university academic level, have the great opportunity to participate in a professional network in which they can exchange information, Knowledge and good practices on European police cooperation and matters relating to the area of freedom, security and justice of the EU.
It is a program that combines, in each one of the seven modules, a distance phase with another stage in the classroom and that is taught in its entirely in English.
It is primarily intended for senior officers in Law enforcement activity or experts in this field who seek to gain or improve their competencies in the International and European police issues
