Be Secure - Feel Secure (BSFS) - Enhancing community trust & well-being in Piraeus

Τhe Evidence-Driven Urban Risk Assessment (CURiM) novel methodology

Prof. Dimitrios Kallergis, the BSFS senior researcher of the University of Piraeus Research Center (UPRC), analyses the CURiM methodology.

Several recent research projects focus on the diverse aspects and perspectives of risk management with regards to urban security, in urban environments. In this vein, a new perspective of policy on a Greek and European level also exists regarding the “new anti-criminality policy ”which is reflected in the quadruple helix:
Security, Inclusiveness, Modernization, Extroversion – Information.

On these grounds, the BeSecure-FeelSecure project proposes a novel methodology to meet the Municipality of Piraeus and its stakeholders’ requirements and which is capable of dealing with the evolving urban risk landscape.

The CURiM methodology takes advantage of the risk assessment and impact assessment capabilities for identifying/assessing risks, threats and incidents and it elaborates on the urban security management by
utilizing an enhanced problem-oriented policing strategy.

In this context, CURiM incorporates novel risk models and mathematical instruments for risk prediction as well as it explores the open intelligence capabilities (e.g., social networks, crowd sourcing) that allow the analysis of security, risks and threats.
