What does EUCPN do?

  • Identify good practices & share knowledge and experience gained between member countries
  • Accumulate and evaluate information on crime prevention activities
  • Improve the exchange of ideas and information within the Network
  • Develop contacts and facilitate cooperation between Member States
  • Contribute to developing local and national strategies on crime prevention
  • Promote crime prevention activities by organising meetings, seminars and conferences.

Work Programme

The format for the current EUCPN Work Programme was agreed at the EUCPN Board meeting on 14 July 2005. The emphasis is on having a number of small well managed projects which will deliver clear results within a defined timescale. The Work Programme is not allotted to a specific time span and new projects are added as the need arises.

Seven 'headline' themes have been agreed for the current Work Programme:

  • Crime proofing of legislation
  • Making goods less vulnerable to crime
  • Common methodology to evaluate best practices
  • Inventory of good practices
  • Monitoring Member State crime prevention policies
  • Focus on specific and well-defined types of crime (juvenile, urban, drugs)
  • Professionalising and strengthening the EUCPN

Each of the Work Programme projects falls within one of more of the headline themes, and the Programme itself complies with a set of underlying principles.

The Programme is updated regularly and mainly comprises standard templates describing projects currently in progress and their timescales for delivery.
