The International Centre for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) is an international forum for national governments, local authorities, public agencies, specialized institutions, and non-governmental organizations to exchange experience, consider emerging knowledge, and improve policies and programmes in crime prevention and community safety. The ICPC monitors developments, provides direct assistance to members, and contributes to public knowledge and understanding in the field. ICPC's actions are inspired by the United Nations Guidelines for the Prevention of Crime. It seeks to enhance awareness of, and access to, its international knowledge base on prevention and human safety policies and intervention; promote the implementation of best practices and tools enhancing community safety; facilitate rewarding international exchanges between countries and cities, and the justice system and civil society associations; and provide technical assistance and facilitate expert interaction.
