On October 22 – 24, 2015 the annual Conference of EUNWA took place in Castel Ritaldi, Italy. Renowned scientists and police experts as well as neighbourhood watch practitioners have gathered and discussed methods for crime prevention and successful cooperation under the lead of Karl L. Brunnbauer, President of the EUNWA and the Austrian proNACHBAR association.
EUNWA, a major European initiative in the area of safe living and crime prevention was inaugurated last year. The EUropean Neighbourhood Watch Association was founded in Vienna in the presence of 25 European neighbourhood watch and crime prevention organizations from 19 countries uniting to coordinate their efforts to make daily life safer. EUNWA member organizations represent well over 20 million citizens.
Open borders, increasing international mobility and reduction of police forces have all had an impact on the feeling of security across Europe. This is why more and more European citizens are forming neighbourhood watch organisations with the objective to reduce property crime.
