INSPEC2T (Inspiring CitizeNS Participation for Enhanced Community PoliCing AcTions) is a three-year project that started in May 2015. The project is funded by the European Commission, under the “H2020-FCT-2014 Ethical/Societal Dimension Topic 2: Enhancing cooperation between law enforcement agencies and citizens - Community policing” call.
INSPEC2T projects’ scope is to develop a sustainable framework for Community Policing that effectively addresses and promotes seamless collaboration between the police and the community.
INSPEC2T approach bases its conceptual foundations on EU crime prevention and Member States specific Internal Security Policies, validated research results and best practices from cooperation between police and local, regional and national communities. This is perceived as an origin to apprehend special characteristics, particularities and determinants for trust between all stakeholders.
INSPEC2T will be demonstrated and validated in 5 EU cities by a wide range of relevant stakeholders.
INSPEC2T engagement and active participation is stimulated through fully dynamic, interactive and immersive training Serious Game applications that empower players to familiarise themselves with the system, gain an intuitive understanding of its functionalities and motivate their engagement in Community Policing activities.
Special focus will be given to Community Policing awareness raising activities for both police and citizens. The above activities and associated results, will provide a solid foundation for the evolution of the Next Generation Community Policing roadmap in Europe.
Upon completion of the relevant work, copies of public INSPEC2T deliverables will be available here.
Project newsletters, brochures and other dissemination and communication material can be accessed here.
