The ProHIC tool enables stakeholders at a local level to more effectively tackle High Impact Crime (HIC).
The tool supports the Dutch police, municipalities, public prosecutor, citizens, businesses and other organisations to work together through the phases of the SARA problem-solving method (Scanning, Analysis, Response and Assessment) to reduce and prevent High Impact Crime. The ProHIC Tool is used and issued on a national basis its use is place and problem specific, focusing on one city or even one neighbourhood and on one or more types of High Impact Crime (HIC) such as burglary, assault, or robbery. The ProHIC Tool is available in both Dutch and English and provides advice and solutions proven to be effective in the fight against High Impact Crime.
The tool is composed by ""The Book of Basics"" and a shorter manual, promotional materials (a process flow chart, an infographic, a flyer and a poster). LOBA was responsible for designing all the materials of the tool and for creating an informative website as well as other materials that assist in the dissemination of the toolkit (such as a PowerPoint template).
