Police and Policing in a System of Safety The crisis in policing has prompted world-wide contemplation of the possibility of de-funding the police. The webinar series will explore and present alternatives to de-funding the police and also to the brutality and enforcement-focused mandate for policing. Policing should be reframed within a concept of systemic urban safety, as one amongst a transversal set of mandates.

It ensures that civil society are recognized and heard in advancing the crime prevention and criminal justice agenda and in designing, implementing and measuring results of relevant policies everywhere. Under the umbrella of the Alliance, cooperation among its members will be strengthened, reinforcing the expertise and vision of each of the members to add value and support the work of relevant international organizations, especially UNODC. The Alliance encourages its members in playing a key role towards the achievement of the SDGs, and in particular Goal 16 to “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.”
