Summary

Modern culture of policing focused on serving society, based on establishing of co-operation and paltnership between the Police and population — its philosophy, concept, strategy and tactics for implementation, practical top-down management; existing practices, trends, good experiences and lesson leamed in crime prevention and community involvement.

The purpose of this study tour is to get Belarusian MIA/Police delegation familiar with the existing practices in Hungary on police tactics related to society-oriented policing: tools, mechanisms and practical top-down management of the implementation process. In particular, special attention is to be paid to the practical aspects of establishing and maintaining of co-operation and partnership between the Police and population (approaches, forms, methods, etc), positive and negative lessons learned. Another important aspect is to learn how civil society organisations are engaged in the prevention of crime.

During the study tour the following key points are to be addressed:

  • Organisational and planning methods (at central and regional level) and regulations that specifically facilitate the relationships of the civil society organisations and the police.
  • Basic tactics, tools and mechanisms for the implementation of people-oriented policing: lessons learned, day-to-day dealing with communities (patrol tactics, approaches, forms, methods, etc).
  • Police station premises, with special attention given to rooms to receive public.
  • Managing day-to-day community policing tasks, how it applies for the local criminal and operational environment, mechanism(s), ways for creating a partnership of police and population;
  • Roles and responsibilities of community policing from a gender perspective.

As a result of the study tour the members of the Belarusian delegation will prepare a comprehensive report that will include valuable findings and recommendations on possible usage in Belarus of various elements of society-oriented policing in general and for improving of practical implementation of community policing in particular.

This report will serve as a basis for the national round-table to be organised in the second half of October 2010 by the Ministry of Interior with the support from the OSCE Office in Minsk and Strategic Police Matters Unit of the OSCE Secretariat.
