Svet added that the District Authority will be more active in notifying local communities about the events taking place in the neighborhoods, such as cultural events, closing and repairing roads, and will involve the communities themselves and, if necessary, the police.
Also, the plans include developing various information channels, regularly exchange information with societies and police, support the training of police aides and reward the best of them. In addition, cooperation will be developed between the social security department of the government, a network of child protection specialists and the police.
The head of the Kesklinn Police Department, Kaido Saarniut, noted that being at the same table means that the parties have a common goal. "As a result, all: the police and local residents, entrepreneurs and local authorities are responsible for security in micro-districts. Together we can achieve more, especially if we do not let each other be in the comfort zone," - Saarniut noted.
The cooperation agreement obliges the police to transfer information to societies of micro-districts and organize activities aimed at improving security. The societies, in turn, will give the police and the government information on offenses and security problems. The societies will also be responsible for alerting residents of micro-districts and for their involvement.
The communities of micro-districts listed in the contract problems that they would like to solve together with partners. For example, for societies of Juhkentali, Kassisaba, Luite, one of the main themes is observance of speed limits, pedestrian crossings, traffic lights, curbs, parking and pedestrian roads. In the Old City, there are still problems with observance of restrictions on the night sale of alcohol, street musicians and the behavior of bicycle-taxi drivers.
"We will gradually consider all the problems and will try to work together on fixing the situation. A safe living environment can only be created in cooperation with local communities," - said Elder of Kesklinn. The next meeting of all parties is scheduled for late summer.
