Purpose and goal

The project aims to develope a new collaborate model, based on the internationally proven BID concept, in order to create safe and secure places, towns and villages in Sweden. By combining a well established swedish BID-place management model with well stablished methods for crime prevention and crime reduction the projects creates a new model that gives police, municipality, business sector, non-profit organizations, property owners and authorities the possiblity to combine forces and in a structured way create safe places and inclusive societies.

Expected results and effects

Within the project we want to develop a new collaboration model for the development of safe and including places that can be used by municipalities and organisations in whole Sweden. The county administrative boards in Dalarna and Värmland, Foundation Saver Sweden and the place management organisation Svenska Stadskärnor cooperate to develop the model, test it and distribute it at national level. The project partners have extensive experience and expertise in their respective areas, and are nationally well-established. The new model i expected to have good impact at national level.

Planned approach and implementation

The BID model´s five focus areas are processed from the perspective of safety and gender equality and to include aspects of other models such as safety analysis and feminist urban planning. The cooperating parties will carry out three physical meetings where the different models are gradually merged. Each meeting is combined with on site demonstrations of site development and safty analysis. Theory and practice are compiled and an adapted BID model with focus on security and inclusiveness is presented on the parties´ websites.
