Crime Prevention : Principles, Perspectives and Practices, Paperback / softback Book

Crime Prevention : Principles, Perspectives and Practices Paperback / softback


Crime Prevention: Principles, Perspectives and Practices is a concise, comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of crime prevention.

The authors contend that crime prevention strategies should include both social prevention and environmental prevention.

It embraces these strategies as an alternative to policing, criminal justice and 'law and order'.

Part I presents an overview of the history and theory of crime prevention, featuring chapters on social prevention, environmental prevention and evaluation.

Part II explores the practice of crime prevention and the real life challenges of implementation, including policy making, prevention in public places, dealing with social disorder and planning for the future.

Crime Prevention provides readers with an understanding of the political dimension of crime prevention and the ability to critically analyse prevention techniques.

It is essential reading for undergraduate students of criminology, crime prevention and public policy.
