During the course of October 2021, the Center for the Study of Democracy will hold a series of four public events on "Conventional crime and public trust in the work of police" with the participation of experts from the Ministry of Interior, local governments in different regions of the country and civil society organizations working in the field of protection of the rights of victims of crime.

The first of them, held on October 6, 2021, under the title “Can Sofia become a safer city?”, aimed to examine the criminogenic situation in the capital. Among the issues discussed during the discussion were the significant differences in citizens' perceptions of security and levels of crime registered by police, as well as the reasons for the low level of trust in the work of the responsible institutions. The recommendations of the experts from the Center related to the improvement of the security environment in the metropolitan areas, enhancing the inter-institutional cooperation and the introduction of innovative mechanisms for crime prevention, ultimately achieving a positive change in citizens’ attitudes.


This event was held with the financial support of the Active Citizens Fund of Bulgaria under the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area and reflects the views only of its participants.
