TISPOL publishes its 2017 Annual Report
Published Thu, 03/05/2018 - 14:40
Welcome to the Annual Report of 2017. This is the third and final report against our three-year strategy 2015 - 2017. This strategy focused on four principle objectives. We set out to deliver safer and more secure roads and to also ensure that the TISPOL network was effective and efficient in the way it conducts its business and engages with key stakeholders within the road safety arena across Europe. This includes the European Commission, senior government officials within members states, senior police officers, non-government organisations and citizens across Europe. During 2017 we have evolved TISPOL to a membership network and we now have the committed support of 28 European Countries.
Membership continues to grow and we are currently processing new applications. As of 2017, each member country now pays a membership fee in order to sustain and advance the work of TISPOL. We believe this fee gives exceptional value and allows TISPOL to build on its existing achievements in terms of partnership working across Europe to improve road safety. We are grateful to all members who contribute. The data in the following pages gives a small sample of the work we do, and of the benefits our funding streams have brought to road users.
