The Development Plan for Reducing Violence for Years 2010-2014 is prepared assuming that in order to reduce violence it is important to:
- prevent violence by changing people's values, dispositions and attitude to violence;
- reduce possibilities for the occurrence of situations facilitating violence;
- improve access of victims of violence to assisting and supporting services;
- ensure more efficient intervention of the criminal justice system in crimes of violence and thus reduce repetitive victimization and recidivism of criminal offenders.
