The Northern Model of Crime Prevention: Review of recent developments and lessons learned in Norway

ICPC Lunch Seminar / September 14th 2007, Montreal (Canada)

Author(s) : International Centre for the Prevention of Crime

 

Abstract :

The National Norwegian Crime Prevention Council (KRÅD) functions as the Norwegian Government’s body of expertise within the judicial system, working under the Ministry of Justice. Its mandate is to contribute to the coordination of crime preventive initiatives between public authorities and private organisations. One of KRÅD‘s main tasks is to encourage local municipalities to follow a model for coordination of local crime preventive enterprises. The success of this integration process relies on the active involvement of municipal authorities at top levels and local heads of the police. This approach was implemented in Norway in the early 1990’s following its very successful development in Denmark. Erik Nadheim presented the challenges and progress of KRÅD‘s Nordic Crime Prevention Model.
