The EU Project "Safer Space for Safer Cities" (SafeCi) brought together policy professionals and experts from 10 EU countries to exchange their experiences. The resulting Best Practice Handbook summarizes expert recommendations on 6 key topics. One chapter covers Meike's over 4-year collaboration with the Berlin Police to identify Super-Recognizers.
