Denmark - Book a Police Officer

05 September 2018

In Denmark we are aiming at a high level of safety among the citizens, and a high level of trust in the police. For that reason, we are continuous being curious on new methods to engage with the citizens, for maintaining and improving these high levels of safety and trust. In 2014 the Police district of “South Sealand and Lolland-Falster” started up a new service. The District wanted to involve the community in where to conduct traffic controls. In 2018 the district added a new topic to their service; ”Book a dialogue meeting”. Today the service is called “Book a police officer” where the main objective is involving the citizens; regarding traffic controls the citizens are invited to take an active role in identifying hotspots and thereby helping the police as well as the local community. The dialogue meetings are helping the police in identifying, for what reason the citizens are feeling unsafe. That gives the Police the opportunity to address the citizens with facts on crime, fear of crime and advice on crime prevention in the dialogue with local community.
