Lessons for Resilience

Consider how to manage policing requirements as a result of COVID-19
Public protection

In Argentina, there has been a sharp rise in cybercrime directed at the elderly. Consider:

  • Restructuring sections of the police force to incorporate more officers to reinforce cybercrime investigations
  • Preventive and participatory approaches to reducing crime through participatory security mapping. This combines crime data, geography and local knowledge to help protect people vulnerable to this type of crime
  • Recruit retired police officers to help cope with the demands of COVID-19 - this has a positive impact on officers' mental health

This lesson was contributed by an expert within the Ministry of Government and Security in Argentina during project data collection.
