Short description:
The International Centre for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) was established in 1994 in response to calls for action from local authorities, governments and UN crime prevention entities. The mission of ICPC is to promote safer and healthier societies and communities through the application of strategic and evidence-led programmes and initiatives which aim to reduce and prevent offending and victimization and to support international norms and standards, in particular the UN Guidelines on the prevention of crime (1995 and 2002). It encourages countries, cities and institutions to invest in prevention rather than relying on more costly criminal justice responses to crime.
ICPC composed by Member Organizations and Member Cities, Board of Directors an Advisory and Policy Committee (APC) and a Scientific Committee.
