Crime Prevention and Community Safety Summary


Crime Prevention and Community Safety: Politics, Policies and Practices by Adam Crawford

Crime prevention and community safety have never before been so high on the public and political agendas, and preventing crime has become a central concern of government - both national and local. This book provides a much-needed account of crime prevention and community safety, examining the issues and debates that have arisen, and explaining them in the light of research evidence. The nature and consequences of the shift to crime prevention upon relations between the state and individuals are considered, as are the implications for the many organisations increasingly charged with responsibility for delivering community safety.

In analysing the development of crime prevention in Britain, Adam Crawford draws on domestic as well as comparative research and practical experiences. What is meant by crime prevention? What understandings of human nature and crime causation do specific preventive strategies assume? How do political perspectives shape and influence such strategies? What are the likely future directions of crime prevention? These are just some of the important questions addressed in this book.

Adam Crawford steers the reader through the theoretical arguments and debates in this area, supporting and illustrating his analysis throughout with practical examples from case studies. In so doing, he outlines and evaluates the growing importance of crime prevention and community safety within the contemporary British system of crime control, providing both students and professionals in the field with a highly informative key text.
