Pays : Maroc
Localisation : Tangier and Tetouan

Date : 2016

Contexte : Clear channels of communication between the police and citizens are vital building blocks for any democratic society. A USAID participatory youth assessment conducted in 2015 in Tangier and Tetouan revealed that youth’s sense of insecurity in their neighborhoods could be attributed to a lack of positive police presence. In an effort to bolster democratic participation, the Government of Morocco has engaged in a series of reforms that prioritize direct engagement between police, local authorities, and citizens to better respond to their needs and improve the force’s overall efficiency.

Community policing is both a philosophy and an organizational strategy that emphasizes partnership and collaboration between police and the communities that they serve with the objective of identifying and jointly responding to problems of crime, disorder, and fear of victimization. USAID supports the Kingdom of Morocco’s reform efforts through a community policing pilot project in designated marginalized neighborhoods in Tangier and Tetouan.

The project works in three strategic areas : * STRENGTHENING THE CAPACITY of community-based associations to assist in resolving neighborhood crime and safety issues. * TRAINING AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE to commanders and line personnel of the Tangier and Tetouan police forces. * BUILDING TRUST AND COLLABORATION between community actors through facilitated joint activities.
