Closing event the EU Project LET4CAP – Law Enforcement Training for Capacity Building (Brussels, 5th December 2019)

The final event of the Project LET4CAP – Law Enforcement Training For Capacity Building will be held on 5th December 2019 in Brussels, at the NH BLOOM hotel, from 09:00 to 12:30 hrs.

 The meeting is open to all relevant interested institutions involved in activities related to law enforcement capacity building in third countries, in mentoring and advising host country counterparts in processes of reform and rebuilding institutions.

LET4CAP is a project funded by DG HOME (Migration and Internal Affairs) of the European Commission (HOME/2015/ISFP/AG/LETX/8753) entrusted to a consortium led by CoESPU – Centre of Excellence for Stability Police Units of the Arma dei Carabinieri, based in Vicenza, in partnership with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa (SSSA), Studiare Sviluppo (in-house company of the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance), CEP – Centre for European Perspective (an international think-tank based in Menges, Slovenia) and the Polish National Police (Policja).

 The main objective of the project is to contribute to the development and harmonization of a training package for police forces engaged in training activities abroad, given the need to increase national capacities in the area of transfer of sector-specific expertise and to promote uniform law enforcement in third countries according to a common European approach.
