The Czech Presidency of the EUCPN will focus on working with a particularly vulnerable crime victim.
The aim 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.
