Neighbourhood Safety Officers project Cape Town South Africa

This project involves the implementation of community policing in Cape Town, South Africa. VAZ Global realized the cooperation with a series of social organisations including universities, local councils, the Metropolitan Police Department and the City of Cape Town. I explicitly engaged and included the academics of the University of Cape Town. Thus far, as a result within the project, 20 neighbourhood safety officers have been placed in as many suburbs of Cape Town.

Community Policing project in Sweden Stockholm

Together with my partner the “Safer Sweden Foundation”, VAZ Global investigates the possibilities of an effective model of Community Policing in the problem areas of the bigger cities in Sweden (including Stockholm).

CPTED training programme for students of Universities in Czech Republic & Latvia

How can architecture contribute to the safety of public space? At two Universities in Czech Rupublic and Latvia, VAZ Global trains students of the faculties of Architecture in the principles of CPTED and the Broken Windows theory. After the training/lectures the students are able to use these principles by designing safe(r) areas and communities in the future.

Training Community Police Officers in The Netherlands

During 1,5 years VAZ Global has been trained about 50 Dutch (National Police) Community Police Officers (Wijkagenten). The training was about both, hard and soft community policing skills like: CPTED, problem solving, networking, social media, presenting, collaboration, time management, promoting active citizenship and personal efficiency.
