Chrisochoidis Presents White Book for the Protection of Greek Citizens

ATHENS — Citizen Protection Minister Michalis Chrisochoidis on Thursday presented his so-called White Book for the protection of citizens.

He noted that security policy concerns us all and can't be kept behind closed doors. Without consensus there can't be law enforcement and without cooperation there can't be security, he said

According to the White Book, the police force is changing its framework of action in order to fully meet the challenges of the 21st century.

It gives priority to communication over pronouncement, to consensus over enforcement and to cooperation as opposed to contention.

The priorities of the Hellenic Police are the protection of the day-to-day life, rights and freedoms of the family and especially of the most vulnerable groups.

The 21st century police is described as having the following characteristics:

It is "green", with reinforcement of recycling actions, 'smart' and uses new technologies and innovative systems, more digital, with less paperwork and use of communication and information systems, open and in communication with society through social media, efficient, with more preventative and volunteer action, and supportive of its human resources through lifelong education.
