Project Duration: 01.06.2018 - 30.11.2019
Project ERDF Financing: 500 446.79 EUR
Project call: 2nd call
One of the challenges in crime prevention faced in cross-border regions of North Lithuania and Kurzeme is lack of capacity in technical solutions for equipment that is available and lack of legal and administrative cross-border cooperation among law enforcement institutions. The project aims to overcome this by installing advanced, up-to -date video surveillance equipment and elaborating contemporary software for data exchange, improving technical capacities of institutions for faster exchange of necessary information among co-operation partners. The project will develop a network of video surveillance cameras and will establish cross-border cooperation system among law enforcement institutions in 17 municipalities in North Lithuania and Kurzeme. Co-operation system will include also State police. General purpose for this cooperation system is fast information/data exchange among co-operation partners without slow formal process of sending many requests between institutions, thus making crime prevention process more effective. 172 video surveillance cameras will be installed and connected into the video surveillance network in 17 municipalities. Also, a digital information tool for information exchange will be developed and all partner’s law enforcement institutions as well as national level institutions will have authorized access to it. Using this tool it will be possible fast to access information about cars passing video surveillance cameras – number of registration pates in particular. To establish cross-border cooperation system, 2 joint workshops and 2 experience exchange events will be organized. During these events law enforcement structures will discuss legal and technical aspects for further cooperation and will agree on creation of cross border co-operation system within framework of existing legislation in Latvia and Lithuania.As the result cross-border cooperation system for the exchange of information from video surveillance networks will be established, and this will enable more effective ensuring of civil security and crime prevention in the region.

|Overall objective of the project was to increase capacities and facilitate legal and administrative cross-border cooperation among law enforcement institutions of project partner’s municipalities for improvement of protection and security of civil society. This objective was achieved by implementing activities to reach two specific objectives:
Project Specific Objective 1 To develop network of video surveillance cameras in project partners municipalities of North Lithuania and Kurzeme.
To achieve this objective, each project partner (except LP) had installed particular amount of video surveillance cameras ( PP2 -10 cameras, PP3 – 7cameras, PP4 – 5cameras, PP5 – 6 cameras, PP6 – 10 cameras, PP7 – 16 cameras, PP8 – 27 cameras, PP9 – 4 cameras, PP10 – 5 cameras, PP11 – 12 cameras, PP13 – 26 cameras, PP14 – 7 cameras, PP15 – 8 cameras, PP16 – 6 cameras+2reonowated, PP17 – 13 cameras, PP18 – 15 cameras) , all cameras are with necessary equipment for data transfer, monitoring and recording in their territories and cameras was connected into the video surveillance network.
Project Specific Objective 2 To establish cross-border cooperation system among law enforcement institutions of project partners municipalities in North Lithuania and Kurzeme
To achieve this objective, 2 joint workshops / seminars, 2 experience exchange events were organized. During these events law enforcement structures of project partners introduced other partners with their resources and capacities, discussed legal and technical aspects for further cooperation and agreed on creation of cross border co-operation system within framework of existing legislation in Latvia and Lithuania. Letter of intents was prepared and during the final conference it was signed by different law enforcement structures of Latvia and Lithuania as confirmation of their readiness to participate in such system.
|Project main output T1.1.1 has target value 31. Established video surveillance systems include 14 county municipalities in Latvia, 3 District municipalities in Lithuania, 9 municipal police structures and 1 State police structure (representing all Kurzeme region) in Latvia and Lithuanian 1 State police representing all Lithuanian project partner’s law enforcement structures. We can consider target value as reached because surveillance system allows both technically and legally to involve additional law enforcement institutions.
Project main output I1.1.1 has target value 2. Project partner PP2 Aizpute implemented their activities as Investment in infrastructure because at the beginning of the project they already had technical design documentation for establishing of video surveillance system in Aizpute county municipality. This system includes Aizpute county municipality and Aizpute municipal police.
These project main outputs directly contribute to Programme Output Indicators, Number of institutions, participating in cooperation’’, because includes different institutions (municipal, regional and State level) who by signing of Letter of Intents, agreed to cooperate for providing more effective public services.
Programme result indicator is “Number of solutions improving public services’’. Project contributes to this indicator by establishing of cross-border cooperation system for exchange with information from video surveillance networks which improves and makes more effective public services and straightens public services institutions ensuring improvement of civil security and crime prevention in North Lithuania and Kurzeme. To achieve this result, each project partner has install video surveillance cameras (more than 180 in total) with equipment in their territories and connected them into the video surveillance network. National level law enforcement institutions were contacted and invited to participate in project’s seminars and workshops to find solutions for making this network compatible with national level institutions and to determine possibilities and include all level institutions in common information exchange network for more effective services because of easier cooperation and exchange with data from video surveillance cameras.
