UNODC and the Mayor’s office of Bishkek city present a report on Public Safety in Sverdlovskii Rayon
The report describes the results of a unique participatory public consultation process which has led to the adoption of a new local crime prevention plan for the Sverdlovskii rayon in the capital city of Kyrgyzstan.
For the first time in Kyrgyzstan, a joint plan is developed and discussed in an urban setting by the local government, the police and civil society rallied around a common goal - making the city safer for all its inhabitants.
This report provides valuable insights into the organization of a process that allows people to express their opinion about the key priorities in preventing crime and promoting public safety at community level.
Based on the report, government and civil society stakeholders have come together to identify realistic measures that can be taken to address such issues as unsafety in public places, juvenile delinquency and anti-social behaviour, high death ratio and injuries in traffic accidents, property thefts.
The publication was designed as part of the Sub-Programme 2 “Criminal justice, crime prevention and integrity” of the UNODC Programme for Central Asia in partnership with the Public union “For Reforms and results” with financial support provided by the US State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
