The National Caravan started the third week in Piatra Neamt, in the Veronica Micle Hall of the “G.T Kirileanu” County Library.
Next to the Necuvinte Association was the Neamţ County Police Inspectorate, represented by Mrs. Elena Bulgărea – spokeswoman; Police Commissioner Oatu Daria – Prevention Officer; Police Inspector Roman Claudia – Proximity Police Coordinating Officer and Chief Leader, Eftenie Lucian – Proximity Police, who presented us with a positive statistical situation for domestic violence.
“In the first six months of the current year, at IPJ Neamț level there was a decrease of offenses committed in the family, as a comparison with the same period of the previous year, we exemplify: a decrease of 28 deeds of family abandonment, 12 deeds of nonobservance measures on the custody of the minor, a three-fold decrease in non-compliance of protection orders. Increases, by type of offense, were recorded on acts of assault and battery (+16), threat (+6), what could be generated by campaigns concentrated on informing and advising citizens to report any act of violence, while gratifyingly the fact that during the first six months the police officers settled conflict situations, with 463 fewer than in the same period last year. ” – Roman Claudia IPJ Neamț
Statistics on the protection order following the amendment of Law 217/2003 at the level of Neamt County show an increase in the number of applications for the issuing a protection order in 2016 compared to 2015, as well as an increase of issued protection orders, which gives us the confidence that citizens are more informed.
Among the participants was deputy Iulian Bulai, deputy chairman of the Committee for Equal Rights for Women and Men from the Chamber of Deputies, who promised to join us in the intent to put pressure on the public institutions in Neamț as well as on the city of Piatra Neamt to reopen a functional shelter for victims of domestic violence.
We also enjoyed the presence of our most involved ambassador, Damian Pancu, a young student who has shown us that the next generations will have a great impact on changing society for the better.
We would like to thank the Neamț County Police Inspectorate for the involvement, for conducting campaigns and programs to prevent domestic violence and for the collaboration within the “Broken Wings” National Campaign.
We also want to thank Mrs. Mihaela Mereuţă director of the County Library “G.T. Kirileanu” for the warm reception, hosting and for assuring us that in the future she will create an online database with useful information in the field of intra-family violence.
