Since its creation in 1996, the Association of European Police Colleges has been a friendly and efficient network of police colleges from all over the European continent. Today, with 55 member colleges from 43 European and European neighbouring countries, we remain on the front stage of international police cooperation.
Thanks to the dynamism of our members, we offer each year a choice of courses, conferences and various activities aimed at supporting and developing the police training institution for senior police officers throughout the whole European continent.
Beside, our truly European dimension, our experience in the field of police training and the flexibility we offer as an informal network make us a solid partner for institutions such as CEPOL or the European Commission.
The AEPC is constantly developing to answer needs in the best possible way. For the coming years, it has been decided to refocus on our own members.
As President of the AEPC, I hope the present website will further the good communication between our members, but also with all those showing interest for the Association!
Have a nice time on our website!
