Report on National Crime Prevention Councils
In multiple Member States there are semi-independent crime prevention councils in place. Since the European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN) wants to be a platform for crime prevention, the EUCPN Secretariat organised the first meeting for National Crime Prevention Councils (NCPCs) in March 2018. The main goal was to exchange information and experiences about the functioning of NCPCs. After the meeting the EUCPN Sec asked each Member State to complete a questionnaire about their NCPC and the National Crime Prevention Strategies (NCPS). Two questionnaires were send out: one for Member States with a NCPC and one for Member States without one. In the first document (report) an analysis of made of the responses of the Member States who filled in the questionnaire and gave a presentation during the meeting. The second document (summary) gives a detailed overview of the responses of the Member States.
