During the Gala Dinner of the 64th IPA World Congress in Cavtat, Croatia, the Chairperson of the Professional Commission 2015 – 2019, May-Britt Ronnebro, presented Certificates of Recognition to sixteen IPA sections who had organised outstanding seminars and conferences. Each section is invited to clearly report their number of seminars and participants in seminars, including the topics for the training events in their Progress Report each year.

Three IPA sections reported national and regional IPA board member training in community skills and meeting techniques.

Thirteen of the recognised sections had delivered further training for IPA members and in some cases other law enforcement officers, on topics that can be identified as new or of outstanding interest within the police community in their part of the world. In addition, several other sections not mentioned above had reported further training options for IPA members at national or international venues. The vetting of the seminars has been conducted by independent lecturers at five police universities/colleges in Europe, USA and Australasia.

A cordial thank-you to all sections who support the professional pillar of the IPA! 

I am extremely pleased that in 2018, more than 30,000 IPA members received further training through IPA sections, plus an additional 1,000 members participated in further training at our education centre IBZ Gimborn. This is a notable increase of 12,000 people who received training, compared to the previous year.
