Nuisance for the society caused by common crimes led the Ministry of the Interior and Administration to come up with a governmental programme to limit crime and antisocial behaviour called "Together for safety", which was adopted by the Council of Ministers on 18 November 2006. The programme combines the activities of the Police, governmental administration, local government authorities and social partners interested in improved safety and public order. One of the basic assumptions of the programme is to encourage the society to establish permanent and lasting natural partnership with the Police and other safety and public order institutions.
"Together for safety" - programme description
Based on current knowledge about the state and feeling of safety the "Together for safety" programme defines areas of interest and orientations for the activities of all involved entities. One of the basic assumptions of this programme is to improve common safety, including mobilising the society to establish permanent and lasting natural partnership with the Police and other safety and public order institutions.
This is a governmental programme meaning that its implementation is not limited solely to the activities of the Ministry of the Interior, but includes also other institutions involved in work for safety in its broad meaning, as well as the activities of local government authorities and non-governmental organizations.
