"Citizens for Safety" project meeting in Gdańsk

On 25-27 June 2014 UBC Commission on Local Safety (CLS) meeting took place in Gdansk. The main objective of the meeting was to exchange information on the project S-37 "Building security in cities through citizens participation (Citizens for Safety). The main project will be about creating a website consisting of interactive threat map and database and a mobile device application. The database correlated to the threat map would deliver a unified platform boosting cooperation between local actors on macro regional level. The project website will help cities improve their safety policy by gathering guidelines for real safety problems, practical examples for implementing and evaluation indicators.

The meeting in Gdansk, during which the best practices to the above mentioned project were discussed, was attended by representatives from seven cities - members of UBC CLS: Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn, Jelgava, Liepaja, Panevezys and Gdansk (Municipal Police, Gdansk University of Technology, NGO Political Criticism About / Tri-City and Adaptive Control in Urban Cooperative (sub) Systems (ACCUS) and a representative of the European Forum for Urban Safety (EFUS). Next meeting, during which we will continue our work on project is planned for October 2014 in Liepaja (Latvia).
