Recommendation paper: public-private partnerships in crime prevention
Public-private partnerships are arrangements between public and private actors, within which they collaborate towards a common goal. PPPs are becoming more prevalent within society, partly because they can take on various forms depending on the topic, objectives and level of engagement of the partners. Yet due to this variety in partnerships, the creation and continuation of PPPs are associated with a number of challenges. An effective PPP takes the form of a durable collaboration in which all partners take on specific tasks in order to achieving shared and durable goals.
The main target group for this publication are policymakers on a local, national and European level. They are generally responsible for setting priorities, implementing legislation and initiating large-scale prevention measures. By increasing their focus on PPPs, more opportunities for cooperation with private partners can be created.
