The Police Academy of the Czech Republic in Prague
International cooperation in the field of education
The Police Academy of the Czech Republic has been conceived in accordance with modern trends in higher education and it is fully compatible with police college institutions abroad. Membership of the European Union has also opened up new possibilities and opportunities for the Police Academy.
The Police Academy has become part of the realm of science and education in Europe, where it occupies a specific position as the only state university focusing on the training of experts and specialists for the needs of the Police of the Czech Republic and other security services. The development and improvement of university marketing (based on prognosticating developments on the global and departmental labour market) has contributed to this fact, as have improvements in the professional qualifications of the university's management and executive employees.
Internationalisation in the field of education is taking place by involving the university in international study programmes as well as through cooperation with similar types of European universities in Slovakia, Great Britain, France, Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Hungary. Joint research projects at an academic level as well as in the area of specialist student scholarly activities are being reciprocally organised with the Police Academy in Slovakia (Akadémia policejného zboruv).
In the coming period, priorities will be developed in the field of foreign activities, and not just through involvement in international projects such as CEPOL, MEPA and AEPC. The Faculty of Security and Law is actively involved in implementing projects as part of AGIS (a framework programme to promote police and judicial cooperation in criminal matters). Nonetheless, it is also possible to anticipate that more foreign mobility among academic workers and students will continue to be preferentially implemented within the scope of the ERASMUS programme, which is financially supported with EU funds.
The ERASMUS programme is focused on higher education and vocational education at the university level. It is intended for students, teachers and employees of university institutions. The awarding of an Erasmus University Charter (EUC) from the European Commission is a basic prerequisite for a university's involvement in the ERASMUS programme. Repeatedly obtaining this accreditation ranks as one of the notable successes of the Police Academy of the Czech Republic in Prague.
