High Impact Crime (HIC) such as violent assault, robbery and burglary impact negatively on citizens and their communities. The police and relevant local and national authorities work together with citizens and local institutions / companies to tackle, reduce and, where possible, prevent these crimes from happening. In this ProHIC manual, we provide solutions and tips that have been proven to be effective in the fight against High Impact Crime.

The manual and the ‘pearls of knowledge’ on this website indicate in a practical way how police, local authorities, residents and entrepreneurs can do something about High Impact Crime together. This always starts with a good, thorough analysis of the problem and joint determination of what exactly the problem is. Only then will the joint approach based on such an analysis become effective.
