European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN)

The European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN) was set up by Council Decision 2009/902/JHA on 30 November 2009 repealing the establishing Council Decision 2001/427/JHA. The Network consists of a Board and a Secretariat as well as contact points which are designated by each Member State. The EUCPN Secretariat is hosted by Belgium in the project ‘Towards a European Centre of Expertise on Crime Prevention’ financially supported by the Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme of the European Union European Commission – Directorate-General Home Affairs. Since 1 January 2013 the Board is chaired by Ireland. The European Crime Prevention Network contributes to developing the various aspects of crime prevention at the European Union level, taking into account the European Union crime preventive strategy, and supports crime prevention activities and good practices at the national and local level. In line with the Council Decision a Multiannual Strategy sets out the long-term orientations for the Network. In the first half of 2013 the Irish Presidency will focus on two particular areas of crime: youth offending and internet crime. In addition, together with the Irish Chair the EUCPN Secretariat will work on the topic of ‘evaluation’ of crime prevention interventions. Among others, expert workshops, a toolbox and thematic paper are planned for 2013. The lecture will introduce the EUCPN, its strategies and crime prevention activities on EU, national and local level.
