Preventing and Fighting Radicalisation at the Local Level

Police-population relations: challenges, local practices and recommendations
Publisher: Efus – February 2016
Good relations between citizens and their police are a decisive factor in the population’s feeling of security; they are also key in enabling the police to work efficiently and with serenity. Because cities play a central role in local life, they can contribute to bridging the gap between the police and the population by acting as intermediaries. This publication presents an overview of the major challenges linked to this subject, as well as a series of good practices and recommendations to reinforce relations between the police and the population.
Available in English and French.

Security and Tourism: Concerted Local Policies
Publisher: Efus – October 2015

It includes examples of various practices and a series of recommendations that can be used by any European city or region facing these issues.

GOAL: Preventing Violence in Sport
Publisher: Efus – July 2012

It is necessary to clarify how cameras and images are used.

Innovative Strategies for the Prevention of Reoffending
Publisher: Efus – November 2009
Re-offending represents a large part of crime statistics in Europe. Studies show that a small number of people commit three quarters of all crimes in certain categories. Politicians are therefore trying to find prevention policies which will allow them to better target this group of people, to monitor them and to prevent them from re-offending. This prevention policy needs more staff working at it, and more imagination in developing training courses which will help those in question find a job and integrate into society. It is within this aspect that the project “Innovative strategies to prevent re-offending” operated. It tries to emphasise the impact that the prevention polices may have on the strengthening of social cohesion within communities, with the common point being the focus on people and their relationship with society..
