Constructing Public Safety with Civic Responsibility

Jan 2012
This brochure describes the Inter-American Development Bank's activities related to security, public safety, and justice. It includes a discussion of the areas of security in which the Bank works, a review of some of the results of the Bank's interventions, success stories, and an introduction to the IDB's new Public Safety Initiative to support governments in addressing one of the main challenges on international development agendas: curbing a rising tide of crime and violence and achieving greater citizen security.
