The Czech Police Museum Prevention Centre is based in Prague. It has 25 full-time employees and external contributors, and also works with various public and private sector partners. The centre’s activity is based on three main pillars: public information, child education and technical road accident prevention.
We undertake to carry out the following actions during the course of the next three years:
In the context of our permanent exhibition on the history, activities and evolution of police forces in the Czech Republic, we will expand the theme and introduce six new information boards on the conflicting behaviour of children, visibility, child restraint systems, the elderly, traffic, the first world road safety week and the first European road safety day. These information boards will be exhibited in two 60m2 rooms. Each year, over 50,000 people visit the museum.
We will organise one-week seminars for 30 nursery school children and 30 primary school children, who will come to the museum to receive special training. The themes will be as follows:
General road safety problems;
Dangerous situations for pedestrians and cyclists;
Correct behaviour in the car;
The use of helmets for cyclists.
The seminars will be organised weekly, starting in March.
We will prepare conferences on the occasion of three specialised seminars aimed at employees of central state and regional administration bodies, in the context of national accident-free days and the preparation of the national child accident prevention strategy. We anticipate the participation of 30 to 100 people.
We will collaborate on three study dissertations with three final-year students at the police academy. The topics will be as follows:
The effectiveness of different forms of road safety education;
The practical application of road safety education;
Child pedestrian safety and how to improve it.
Every year, we will organise a children’s drawing competition on the theme of road safety. The following bodies will collaborate: World Health Organisation (WHO), LO CZ, the Czech UNICEF committee, and UNIC. The competition will be announced via our website, and we will inform primary and nursery schools about it. The best drawings will be exhibited during the Pragoalarm Fair and will form part of the permanent exhibition at the Police Museum.
