Call: European Crime Prevention Award
Participation in ECPA is open to any project, initiative or package of measures. An objective of the project must be to reduce crime and the fear of crime within the specified theme. Entries can originate from, for example: local authorities, the police, educational institutions, community groups, sports clubs, youth organisations, business community, probation service, neighbourhood watch schemes, parish councils, public transport operators, voluntary organisations/groups etc. The persons entering the projects do not need to have participated in the projects themselves. It is entirely possible that the initiative of a third party is brought to the attention of the jury. Each participating country may enter one project for consideration under the European Crime Prevention Award scheme. It is up to each participating country to decide how to select projects for consideration under the scheme.
There are some binding criteria: The project shall
- focus on prevention and/or reduction of everyday crime and fear of crime within the specified theme
- have been evaluated and have achieved most or all of its objectives
- as far as possible, be innovative, involving new methods or new approaches
- be based on co-operation between partners, where possible
- be capable of replication by organisations and groups in other Member States.
Entries for the European Crime Prevention Award should be submitted through the National Representative of each Member State to the Secretariat, the deadline is 27 September 2019. Please be aware that different (shorter) deadlines can apply within individual Member States. Please contact the National Representative of your Member State for further details.Further information
