We network against corruption

Handbook for Best Practices

The 15th EPAC/EACN Annual Professional Conference will also provide an opportunity for presenting the “Handbook of best practices for the self-assessment of law enforcement forces to prevent corruption and enhance integrity”.

The aim of the handbook is to provide a framework for evaluating the weaknesses and the vulnerability of a law enforcement authority in terms of the integrity of its organisation and its members.

This text, based  on the experience of the French National Police and Gendarmerie Inspectorates was led by the International Co-operation Directorate and finalized by seven experts from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Spain. It was officially adopted on 6 July 2014, by the 28 members of the Law Enforcement Working Party (LEWP) meeting of the European Union.
