CCI - Cutting Crime Impact

In October 2018, the EU project "Cutting Crime Impact – Practice-based innovation in preventing, investigating and mitigating high-impact petty crime" was launched. The DPT is participating as a partner in this 36-month project. CCI aims to encourage wider EU adoption of effective approaches to safety and security, and will develop an extended European Security Model that includes high-impact petty crime and citizens’ feelings of insecurity. The project is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

Background and Objectives: Crime has a significant negative impact on European citizens’ quality of life, community cohesion and the safety and security of the urban environment. The aim of the Cutting Crime Impact (CCI) project is to enable Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and security policymakers to adopt a preventative, evidence-based and sustainable approach to tackling high-impact petty crime. Tailored to the needs of end-users, CCI will design, develop and demonstrate four Toolkits covering:

  1.     Predictive Policing
  2.     Community Policing
  3.     Crime Prevention through Urban Design and Planning
  4.     Measuring and Mitigating Citizens’ Feelings of Insecurity
