On behalf of the Brandenburg state capital Potsdam, BIGS is working together with the Neue Köhler Management Gesellschaft (NKMG) and the IABG to carry out a security analysis for Potsdam. Having already conducted several studies in Saxon municipalities, we are now conducting a citizen survey with subsequent analysis on behalf of the Office of Municipal Crime Prevention of the City of Potsdam.
The results of the survey on the subjective feeling of safety and the quality of life of citizens in Potsdam will be examined and compared to existing statistical data. For the purpose of the analysis, the prevalence of different forms of crime, the general development of the city, the quality of life, forms of impairment as well as experiences of crime, victimization and behavior related to crime are examined in more detail. A comparison of recorded subjective data and statistical indicators will be used to identify fields of action for politics, authorities and other institutions. The aim is to improve the quality of life and feeling of security among citizens.
