European Crime Prevention Award

The European Crime Prevention Award (ECPA) is a contest which aims to reward the best European crime prevention project. The award got off to a modest start in 1997 with the participation of three countries: United Kingdom, Belgium and the Netherlands. The latter two countries had gained some experience during the preceding three years with the joint organisation of the Roethof Award. The Roethof Award is originally a Dutch crime prevention award, which was instituted in 1987 by the editorial board of the Dutch crime prevention magazine SEC.

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.

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:
