Hungary’s Ask for Help! program raising awareness of bullying and violence among minors and promoting ways of prevention has won the main prize of the European Crime Prevention Network (EUCPN).
László Garamvölgyi, communications director of Hungary’s National Crime Prevention Council, said on Monday that the program puts in focus the development of competences and emphasizes the importance of asking for help. The Hungarian program has won the contest’s main prize with 10,000 euros ahead of Scandinavian contenders that had fetched the prize for several years, he said. The program has been made in partnership with experts of UNICEF Hungary, according to EUCPN’s website. EUCPN aims to promote crime prevention knowledge and practices among the EU member states.
