The Sixth State Reform redesigned the security architecture in the Brussels Region. The reform has mainly resulted in significant responsibilities in terms of prevention and security being entrusted to the Brussels Region, without impacting the competences and prerogatives of the different levels of power (federal or local).
The reform also resulted in the abolition of the position of Governor of the Administrative District of Brussels-Capital, and its replacement with a “Senior Official”, as well as the establishment of increased coordination between the various parties active in security in Brussels.
In order to assume these new powers, the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region decided to create a new Public Interest Organisation (PPO) called: Brussels Prevention & Security (BPS). The creation of BPS is intended to enable the management of security in Brussels to be organised in a centralised cross-disciplinary manner and to enable a regional security policy to be developed.
Order amending the Order of 28 May 2015 creating a public interest body centralising the management of the prevention and security policy in the Brussels-Capital Region and creating the Regional College for Security, Prevention and Emergency Service Professions - Brusafe
Brussels Prevention & Security is tasked with coordinating prevention and security policies in order to ensure the peace and security of people and property in the Brussels Region.
Brussels Prevention & Security must, in the short and medium term, become a reference body in its field for the Brussels Region, and play a central role in terms of coordinating the various parties active in the prevention and security chain.
As the cornerstone of an organisation, the values of BPS have been defined, chosen and prioritised by an internal working group made up of all employees:
Everyone at BPS behaves in an exemplary and impartial manner with regard to people and rules.
Everyone at BPS is open-minded and considerate of living well together in diversity.

Everyone at BPS is improving and challenging himself or herself to develop and generate appropriate solutions on a continuous basis.
