Pawel Adamowicz

Dear Efus Members,

We are proud that city of Gdansk has joined European Forum for Urban Security.
It will be great opportunity for Gdansk to exchange knowledge in the field of urban safety and compare politics programmes on local crime prevention.
I hope that our involvement will increase practical knowledge of various dimensions of safety, strengthen citizens safety programmes making the more operative and effective and support feeling of safety factors among citizens.
The engagement of city of Gdansk will give real contribution to other Efus members.
I wish other Efus members a fruitful international cooperation and constructive dialogue.
Sharing our experiences at issue of safety and low aspects and taking up creative, multi
tasks projects should bring real results.
I really hope that our international efforts will create best solutions to enforce policies of
urban safety in european cities.

Sincerely yours,
