The mission of the International Centre for the Prevention of Crime (ICPC) is to support the development and implementation of practical and effective policies, programs and projects designed to reduce crime and delinquency in communities, cities and other geographic units, and to reinforce a sense of safety.

More specifically, the Centre will promote multi-sector approaches, and will support cooperation and collaboration between the various partners in the institutional, community, associational and private sectors, in order to deal with problems of crime and insecurity. It will support strategies for mobilizing the community’s energies around crime prevention.
