Workshops on Local Governance Structures Are Completed
Under the previous phases of the Strengthening the Civilian Oversight of Internal Security Forces Project, ten Local Prevention and Security Boards were established for the prevention and solution of local security problems. The number of boards, which aimed at developing and implementing local action plans by bringing together members of the law enforcement institutions, public institutions, civil society organisations and the media, rose to nineteen under Phase III. The goal of the boards is, inter alia, to develop preventive solutions to local security problems and prepare Local Prevention and Security Action Plans in line with these suggestions for solutions.
A series of two-day workshops was organised under phase three of the project to support the activities related to the establishment of new Boards and the local security. The workshops included sessions which aimed at:
- giving a briefing on the ongoing work carried out by several units for crime prevention in the relevant district,
- discussing local security problems of the relevant district with members of the media and civil society organisations and developing solutions, and
- determining the potential members of Beşiktaş LPSB.
The first day of the workshops included presentations on crime prevention efforts by the representatives of the law enforcement forces in the district, district municipality, civil society organisations and the media. On the second day of the workshops, working groups were formed to encourage participants to have free discussions and produce tangible solutions to the problems. At the end of the day, spokesperson of the groups made a presentation to all participants, sharing group assessments as a final declaration.
