Summary

This book examines several types of crime prevention approaches along with their respective end-goals. Strategies discussed include those preemptive measures designed to prevent conditions that foster deviance, those directed toward persons or conditions with a high potential for deviance, and those for persons who have already committed offenses. The effects of physical environments, the mass media, displacement and diffusion, electronic monitoring, and home confinement are also explored. This timely revision provides a new chapter on developmental crime prevention - an innovative approach focusing on the ways in which victimization actually occurs and can serve as an impetus for motivated offenders. Additionally, those sections covering aspects of civil law have been expanded, and the politics of prevention is more specifically addressed throughout. All chapters now include updated summary tables that indicate the state of evidence as well as key terms and definitions, learning objectives, and web references. * Additional attention is paid to race issues, including the tangential topic of organizing dysfunctional neighborhoods * Includes a new chapter on developmental crime prevention as well as an expanded history section in Chapter 2, which traces the evolution of successful past practices as well as the first lines of defense * Enhanced online resources for both students and instructors including CPTED (Crime prevention through environmental design) exercises
