Safer Prague with more police officers

The Prague council plans to increase number of police officers in the streets of the city to improve citizens┬┤safety and to suppress criminality. Within two years there should be 2700 police officers, which is 1000 more than now.

Approving this decision is up to the council which will be elected in the forthcoming municipal elections in October. There are also plans to improve the camera system in the city with some more security cameras in operation, and to use a program which can independently uncover a possible crime.

In recent years, the number of crimes committed in the city decreased. In 2002 it was about 102.870, last year about 95.730. But according to the municipal authorities, the clarifying of the crimes is less successful as well. Four years ago, the police solved every fourth case, last year it was every fifth one.
