Especially in the current crisis, urgent questions arise in the prevention of violence and crime. For this reason, since 20 March 2020 the German Prevention Day (DPT) has been offering prominent specialist representatives the opportunity to talk about urgent prevention issues within the framework of the "DPT-Interjections". The audio recording of the expert talk with Prof. Dr. Rita Haverkamp, moderated by Erich Marks, can be retrieved here.
The Endowed Professorship of Crime Prevention and Risk Management organized the scientific symposium " On the Trails of Communal Crime Prevention in Germany" (Auf den Spuren der kommunalen Kriminalprävention in Deutschland) on February 11, 2020. Despite the storm "Sabine" about 50 representatives from science and practice attended the event. The Lord Mayor Boris Palmer as well as Prof. Dr. Jörg Kinzig, Head of the Institute of Criminology Tübingen, spoke words of welcome. The program covered a wide range of topics, from the beginnings and the establishment to the perspectives of municipal crime prevention for science and practice.
In the course of the event, practitioners and scientists from all over Germany exchanged information in lectures and discussions about the everyday life of municipal crime prevention as well as its future development.
The lectures of the symposium will soon be published as an anthology in the series "Tübinger Schriften und Materialien zur Kriminologie (TüKrim)" and will be accessible online.
