Situational crime prevention and problem-oriented policing have made rapid progress during the past two decades. But these two related approaches also share a weakness: they have neglected implementation, the stage when prevention measures are put into practice.The contributing authors to this volume are all researchers with a long-standing interest in crime prevention, most of whom have also been directly involved in implementing situational or problem-oriented projects. Their chapters provide both practical guidance and general principles concerning how to get the most out of crime prevention projects.
