Welcome to the EUCPN website.

The EUCPN (European Crime Prevention Network) was set up in May 2001 by an EU Council Decision to promote crime prevention activity in Member States across the EU, and to provide a means through which valuable good practice in preventing crime, mainly "traditional" crime, could be shared. This founding legislation was repealed and replaced by a new Council Decision on 30 November 2009.

This website, which is run and maintained by the EUCPN Secretariat, showcases the work of the EUCPN and provides a source of information on crime prevention issues and activities to help both the members of the Network and other crime prevention practitioners deliver effective solutions that will prevent and reduce crime.

General enquiries about the EUCPN and other requests should be addressed to the EUCPN Secretariat -
