The European Police College (CEPOL) brings together senior police officers from across the EU and aims to encourage cross-border cooperation in the fight against crime, and the maintenance of public security and law and order, through training and exchange programmes and the sharing of research and best pratice.
On 16 July 2014 the Commission brought forward a proposal for a Regulation relating to the constitution and functions of CEPOL. The Regulation, unlike the Council Decision under which CEPOL is currently constituted, apply to the UK only if the Government notifies the Presidency within three months of the proposal being presented to the Council that the UK wishes to take part in the adoption and application of the Regulation-in other words, to opt-in to it.
A debate will be held in the House of Lords on Monday 3 November 2014.
