The police is one of the professions that, in general, has most contact with the people on the streets both for better and for worse.
The staff of projekt UDENFOR is very pleased with the cooperation with the police academy. We have met inquisitive and dedicated police students who sincerely want to learn about the conditions of the homeless people and the background of why some people end up on the streets.

Police training has just been shortened from three to two years and projekt UDENFOR hopes that there will still be time for the students to spend time with our street-based workers.
