COGINTA – A new mandate in Guinea-Conakry

Geneva-Conakry, July 10th, 2013 – COGINTA was mandated by CIVI.POL – the consulting and services office of the French Ministry of Interior – to support the Guinean police in strengthening its linkages with local communities. The project is conducted within the framework of a larger reform program of the European Union started in May 2013. COGINTA experts shall provide services in three pilot locations in Guinea Conakry. Apart from a sensitization campaign on the role and mission of the police, COGINTA will collaborate with its local partners in conducting local diagnostics of security (demographic and socio-economic analyses, crime mapping, victimization surveys including police image), in facilitating the police-communities dialogue and in setting-up local platforms of coordination of community policing.

Sense of insecurity is growing in Geneva

The sense of insecurity is growing in Geneva...
In 2010, 37,2% of residents in Geneva felt insecure compared with 28,7% in 2007. This figure is very high compared to the average 15% in Switzerland. But this feeling does not match the reality of crime in Geneva since the rate of crime has not increased since 2008 in the international city of Geneva.
