Welcome to the Interreg V-A Latvia–Lithuania Programme 2014–2020!About the programme
15 February 2019
The goal of the project “SYNERGY FOR SECURITY” is not only to improve public safety and to reduce crime in the Latvian-Lithuanian border, but also to promote cooperation between law enforcement agencies and local people.The project is implementing the information campaign “Look and speak!”. Within the campaign, 20 short films will be created to address the public through both social networks and social stands. The theme of short films was chosen according to the current problems near the Latvian-Lithuanian border. The theme is created by listening to the representatives of the ombudsmen and local governments of both countries, as well as taking into account the information needs of the society. Information campaign short films will focus on current topics such as smuggling of tobacco products and other excise goods, illegal immigration, identification of suspicious and dangerous persons, theft of agricultural machinery, corruption, unintentional crossing of the border and deception. It is also planned to devote some short films to inform the residents about the order and requirements of the border zone regime, the activities of the State Border Guard immigration service and about education opportunities in the services of the Latvian and Lithuanian interior ministries.
Any citizen who follows developments in both countries and at least at the news headline level is aware of ongoing processes will understand that the above topics have been selected based on current developments in the border area of Latvia and Lithuania. The short films are intended to be made in the style of detective genre, including educational and informative elements for conveying important messages to the audience.
On February 11, representatives of the State Police of Latvia and the State Border Guard met at the Latgale regional administration of the State Police and jointly discussed the progress of the campaign and exchanged ideas and recommendations for the maximum effectiveness of the information campaign.
