ICPC's workshop on prevention of crime and feelings of insecurity in public transport in Bogota, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and with the support of the Bogota City Hall

 

Mandated by the Chamber of Commerce of Bogotá, ICPC is currently assisting the City Hall in developing a prevention policy regarding crime and feelings of insecurity in public transport in Bogotá. Two workshops have been planned with the aim of setting up and adopting effective prevention measures on this subject.

 

The first workshop was held during the week of March 28 2016 in Bogotá and brought together 30 experts from the Chamber of Commerce, the Sub-Secretariat for Coexistence and Security (Bogotá City Hall), the Secretariat for District Mobility, the National Police Directorate for Citizen Security, management from TransMilenio, the transportation system police and security consultants. Among the conclusions reached, the following should be highlighted: the need for a detailed diagnosis of crime and feelings of insecurity within the system, the need for the issue of insecurity in the transport system to be considered an urban theme requiring integrated resources for prevention and the need for strong and sustainable partnerships between the system’s operators, along with follow-up and periodic evaluations of implemented measures.

 

The second workshop will be held in May 2016 and the conclusions will contribute to the development of the Security Plan for public transport in Bogotá.
