In 2013 the National Crime Prevention Strategy – which is the baseline for the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) – decided to promote architectural solutions that help to construct safer homes and safer environment. While it did not attract great attention in Hungary, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) has gone wire in other countries. By following CPTED principles architects build real estates that are not promising for criminals because of its flood lightness, accessibility and orderliness. The Hungarian way was different.

The railway stations are often places with high concentration of passengers and therefore offer many possibilities for pickpocketing. The pickpockets usually apply short distraction to their victims by asking a question or just bumping. Sometimes they get on train at the same time as the victim who later discovers missing money or other valuables.
