European Crime Prevention Award and Best Practice Conference 2022
Registration is closed
The European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA) and Best Practice Conference (BPC) will take place on 8 and 9 December 2022 in the premises of the Prague Congress Center (5. května 1640/65, Prague 4). The theme is working with a particularly vulnerable crime victim.
The theme of the Czech Presidency
The Czech Presidency of the EUCPN will focus on working with a particularly vulnerable crime victim.
The aim of this year’s BPC ECPA is to exchange experiences and good practices, most importantly in the areas of early identification of victims of crime (especially those particularly vulnerable ), prevention of their secondary victimization and re-victimization and how to increase motivation to report crimes and thus to reduce the latency of crime. This can be achieved, inter alia, by improving the communication skills of law enforcement authorities (mostly, but not only, the police), increasing pro-client access to crime victims, witnesses and persons reporting crime. We can achieve our goal also by increasing trust in working with victims, by using new methodologies for identifying victims and for working with particularly vulnerable victims, and last but not least by raising legal awareness of risk groups (e.g. seniors), etc.
Participation in the conference is free of charge (participants pay for accommodation and transport themselves). The language of the conference will be English. The conference will also be interpreted into Czech. We recommend registering as soon as possible, since the space capacity is limited. After registration, each participant will receive a confirmation email with further instructions for logging into the accreditation system. Accredited participants will also receive detailed organizational instructions and the final program of the conference.
