Summary

The quality of past evaluations in measuring the impact of crime prevention programs, and guidelines for improving future evaluations, are explored in this volume.Evaluation has been a driving force in the recent worldwide growth of situational crime prevention and problem-oriented policing, two related approaches whose primary goal is to reduce opportunities for crimes to be committed.The co-editors assert that there has been a growing consensus that evaluations of many of these programs have been unsatisfactory. Debates about how best to improve evaluations, what types of assessments will be most useful to policymakers and practitioners, and what has been learnt from past evaluations, form the starting points for the chapters in this volume.
