Toolbox 10 - Prevention of Organised Crime Targeting Elderly People - Policies and practices
The 10th toolbox in the series published by the EUCPN Secretariat focusses on the main theme of the Slovakian Presidency and the 2016 Best Practice Conference and European Crime Prevention Award, which is the ‘Prevention of organised crimes targeting elderly people’. The first part of the toolbox presents an overview of the existing policies and legislative measures on the international level, with a particular focus on the EU. The second and third part focusses on good and promising practices which were submitted by 19 Member States to compete in the 2016 European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA). Two participating experts, who were invited by the EUCPN Secretariat, gave their view on the best practices presented at the ECPA. Their opinion is processed in the second part of this toolbox. Finally, an overview of the submitted ECPA (and additional) projects can be found in the last part of the toolbox.
