Crime Prevention Project Receives European Award

  • Leonor Sà


‘SOS Azulejo’, a project designed and implemented by the Portuguese Polícia Judiciária Museum, received the Grand Prix, ‘EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Awards’ 2013, in Category 4 — Education, Training and Awareness-Raising. The ‘SOS Azulejo Project’ was launched in 2007 by the Portuguese Judiciary Police Museum (Judiciary Police School). The initial idea of this undertaking was to create a crime prevention project against theft, traffic and vandalism, but it soon grew into something bigger. ‘SOS Azulejo’ now also includes raising awareness about the importance of this kind of cultural heritage and its conservation, as well as obtaining a global approach and a more effective response to the problem of extensive loss of the ‘azulejos’.
