Hungaria - Summer Camps for Children

HU Summer Camp

 

Did you like spending summer time in camps when you were a child? Summer camps are the best places to make new friendships and have new experiences about unknown things.


Organising Accident and Crime Prevention Summer Camp is one of the traditions at the police in Hungary. With the help of the National Accident Prevention Committee county police headquarters organise different summer camps for nursery and primary school children during whole of the summer.


The main target is to handle information about road safety in a playful way. Children can learn about the main traffic rules for pedestrians and cyclists or the meaning of road signs. Besides the road safety children can hear about the danger of summer time during crime prevention lessons, how to store their purse, mobile phone or house keys when they are on the beach or not to open the door for unknown person when they are at home alone. Of course the children have possibility to try police equipment as well as to sit into police cars or meet with police dogs but traditional activities like cycling, swimming in a lake or playing quizzes are also the part of the camp programmes.

Special ankle bracelet against alcohol abuse is introduced nationwide in the Netherlands

 

fußfessel

The alcohol ankle bracelet is introduced nationally. This was reported by Minister Grapperhaus of Justice and Security. This "alcohol meter" is intended for people who have done something punishable under the influence of alcohol and therefore have an alcohol prohibition.

The alcohol meter proved to be a reliable means of checking compliance with the alcohol prohibition during tests, helping to prevent abuse, committing crimes and drink-driving. The minister wrote this today in a letter to the House of Representatives.

Grapperhaus: “ Many violent crimes are committed under the influence of alcohol, such as violence when going out, football or in a domestic atmosphere. The ankle bracelet is an effective way to change behavior. That's why I want it to be deployed nationwide."

Probation

People who are convicted may be subject to an alcohol ban as a special condition. Compliance is now monitored by the probation service on average twice a week through a breathalyzer, blood or urine test. According to the minister, wearing a special ankle bracelet works a lot more efficiently. "It is now a snapshot, so that the alcohol ban can be violated in the meantime."

At the initiative of the GGZ Addiction Probation Foundation,

the Public Prosecution Service and the Ministry of Justice and Security, the functioning of the alcohol meter has been tested in pilots since 2017. "This is important because the social damage from alcohol abuse, including the involvement of the police and the judiciary and the damage caused by road accidents, is estimated at 2.3 to 4.2 billion euros per year. Together with the financial consequences for people through loss of quality of life and even premature death, the social damage will amount to 6.1 billion euros."

This is how the alcohol meter works 

  • An alcohol meter or alcohol bracelet is worn 24 hours a day.
