CCI Project kicks-off in Manchester

The three-year innovative Cutting Crime Impact (CCI) project had its official start on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th October 2018 at MediaCityUK. The event was a starting point for looking at how high impact crimes such as physical and sexual assault, burglary and vandalism can be reduced across Europe.

Six European Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) - the Greater Manchester Police, the Dutch and Estonian national police forces, the Lisbon Police, the German police in Lower Saxony and the Spanish police in Catalonia -attended to discuss, with organisations from across Europe and security experts, how evidence-based design research can be used to tackle these crimes.

The €3.1Million funding has been awarded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Security Research Programme. The event has consider the ways in which organisations and LEAs are currently tackling crime and will discuss solutions to cutting crime more cohesively. The Design Against Crime Solution Centre at the University of Salford will support LEAs in investigating how key roles and services are delivered by each participating police force. This will enable the design and development of practical toolkits tailored to the needs of LEAs.

Dr Caroline Davey, Director of the Design Against Crime Solution Centre and CCI Project Lead said: “This project will bring real evidence-based results in order to help LEAs tackle significant crime and insecurity issues. The negative impact crime has on the quality of citizens' lives, their feelings of community cohesion and of safety and security is of great importance. The psychological and emotional impact of such crimes is far reaching and more effort needs to be spent on their prevention. Discussions from this first meeting will be a starting point for the CCI project, which will eventually result in people feeling more safe and secure in their everyday lives.”

Professor Alexander Siedschlag, Advisory Board member to the CCI project and Chair of Homeland Security at The Pennsylvania State University said: “I look forward to attending this event and being part of the CCI project, which will advance towards an extended European Security Model integrating the prevention, investigation and mitigation of high impact petty crime. The importance of finding solutions to tackle such crimes is imperative in improving citizens’ feelings of security. CCI may also provide a good practice model for more comprehensive approaches to homeland security.”

The consortium of the CCI Project is constituted by the following partners:
