On 24 June 2022, the XXXVII Advanced Training Course concluded an intense year of training activity during the closing ceremony of the Academic Year 2021-2022, which was held at the Prefetto Carlo Mosca Lecture Hall in the Scuola di Perfezionamento per le Forze di Polizia.
This event was held in the presence of the Minister of the Interior, Prefetto-State Councillor Luciana Lamorgese, the Chief of Police – Director General of Public Security Department, Prefetto Lamberto Giannini, the leaders of the Carabinieri Corps, Guardia di Finanza Corps, Prison Police Department, as well as the Ambassadors – or their representatives – of the 2 countries of origin of the foreign auditors who participated in this course (Algeria and Ukraine).
The Academy Director, Major General from the Carabinieri Corps Giuseppe La Gala, delivered a speech and underlined that on that day all the participants celebrated their ambition, that is to say their firm commitment to reach specific goals as well as to improve themselves and the institutions they represent, with the aim of undertaking and developing new initiatives which had never been implemented and seemed impossible to be introduced, in the awareness that their dedication to introduce innovations can lead them to create a “new model of police officer in the field of security”. Moreover, the Director described the main activities which were carried out at the Scuola di Perfezionamento during this Academic Year and which represented the implementation of the key concepts formulated on the occasion of the opening ceremony of this Advanced Training Course: internationality, inter-institutionalization and decision-making capacity. During the closing ceremony, the Academy Director introduced a further innovation brought about by the Academy: the new emblem of the Academy which illustrates its core values represented by the load–bearing and strong walls and arches as well as by the absence of doors or locks which indicate an approach based on the tendency to encourage the exchange of points of view and debates.
Then, the Minister of the Interior took the floor and expressed her best wishes to the trainees who have concluded their training activity at the Academy as well as her hope for them to reach their main goals both at human and professional level. Moreover, Prefetto Lamorgese recalled that the Scuola di Perfezionamento is an interagency istitution representing the political will of 40 years ago when the law which brought about the reform of public security was enacted. This law was intended to make more efficient the management of security and to lay down the principle establishing the importance to carry out a joint activity. As a matter of fact, the Academy is fully implementing its mission, since it demonstrated its capacity to increase and hone the expertise of the trainees as well as to deliver the best training activities and to create a common framework of values for all the police officers/officials working in the field of security.
As usual, at the end of the ceremony, the trainees of the XXXVII Advanced Training Course were awarded the attendance and completion certificate bearing the signature of the Interior Minister, as well as the II Level Master Degree and earned the Scuola di Perfezionamento per le Forze di Polizia – t.SFP qualification (a special golden pin). Then, the closing ceremony of the Academic Year 2021-2022 was concluded.
