Polish project "Safe Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship"
The “Safe Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship” Programme defines the framework of cooperation for common safety and is also a glossary of terms. It identifies areas where threats occur and possible actions in a given area. It is a tool coordinating prevention measures implemented in the voivodeship in various fields of widely understood safety. The Programme inspires local governments to take actions going beyond their tasks assigned in legal regulations and implementing acts, in cooperation with non-governmental organisations and local communities.
Under the Programme, a “Koziołek” award is granted every year to the county which undertook actions, going beyond its regular tasks, aimed at increasing safety and protecting state or private property, which contributed significantly to promoting social activity in the area of human safety and public law and order. The award also provides an incentive in the form of funds for prevention measures in the awarded counties.
The “Safe Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship” Programme originated in December 1999, and was planned for 5 years.
The success of the first edition of the Programme resulted in a decision on its continuation, with subsequent editions planned for 2006-2010 and 2011-2015.
The current edition is planned for the years 2016-2020.
