The highlight of the EUCPN year is the Best Practice Conference (BPC) for sharing and disseminating experience and knowledge of best practices in preventing crime and increasing safety and security in EU Member States. This conference is always held in connection with the European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA) contest. The conference consists of lectures and seminars as well as the presentation and discussion of the projects nominated for the ECPA contest. The ECPA aims to reward the best European crime prevention project.
