Police and law enforcement Working Group


Police forces have a crucial role to play in facilitating a preventative multi/inter-agency approach at the local or regional level. They often know the community very well and can be encouraged to optimise their engagement with it.

RAN POL seeks to identify a more effective police approach which is flexible enough to be shared among many police forces in the EU Member States. This will require peer review of police approaches that work efficiently, identifying successful training opportunities, understanding the role of social media, providing guidelines for trust-based relationships with communities and families, and, finally, optimising cooperation between specialised branches and local community police.
