Every year, the Police School of Catalonia implements a process to identify training needs, in a dialogue with the various law enforcement agencies. It then draws up a yearly training plan and designs the content to be taught, and is committed to providing high quality training and innovation.

Elements that are key to the academy’s work include the careful assessment and monitoring of trainees, preparing them to face future situations with confidence, and training them to be public servants who protect the public’s rights and freedoms and are able to integrate their professional expertise into the society of which they form part.
