Section Brazil launch the ‘Academic Centre – IPA Brazil’

09 Apr 2021


IPA Brazil, following the example of those national sections of the IPA that already have an IPA School, and in celebration of the 59th anniversary of the IPA in Brazil, represented in Brazil by the cherry blossom, officially instituted the ACADEMIC CENTER - IPA BRAZIL (IPA Brazil School).brac2

To establish an academic centre had been a goal for the past three years, as part of the Strategic Management Plan for the total re-engineering of the IPA in Brazil, and which resulted from an official partnership with the academic institution Universidade Internacional (UNINTER). Uninter is among the 10 largest Higher Education institutions in the country, and is the only one accredited with the highest score by the Brazilian Ministry of Education and Culture (MEC).

The IPA BRAZIL ACADEMIC CENTER (Academic Center - IPA Brazil), coordinated by the Directorate of Academic, Educational and Cultural Affairs of the Brazilian Section, and housed in the same location as the IPA Brazil Language Institute (Latin American Language Institute - ILAL), works in conjunction with the Arm Defense Security; OVIEPOL, the Observatory Institute; ANP (National Police Academy), which offers numerous courses of continuing training and specialisation in Criminal Investigation Management as well as Police Intelligence through the Superior Police School; and the DTG ( Defensive Tactics Group), formed by police members of the IPA in the United Kingdom, coming from the European police tactical area. The Academic Center currently seeks to form a partnership with IBZ Gimborn, an IPA centre of excellence in police studies in Germany, with the aim of presenting unique courses at a national and international level with certification and special registrations.

To commemorate the anniversary of IPA Brazil and the inauguration of the Academic Center - IPA Brazil, the national seminar: “Data Leakage and Information Security” was developed, in an online format, with 120,000 free access points and with official certification of registered participation at MEC / Brazil.
