Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the increase in policing technology, crime prevention has become a major part of local, state, and federal policing. Research into the area of crime prevention has also allowed for developing, implementing, and testing various crime prevention programs for effectiveness in reducing crime.

In Policing and Crime Prevention Dr. Deborah Mitchell Robinson, and co-authors, stress throughout the text that the idea of police and community interaction is to build a successful crime prevention program. The underlying theme is that a successful crime prevention strategy involves both police officers and community members.

Policing and Crime Prevention represents the most up-to-date information regarding policing and crime prevention. Many issues related to crime prevention are presented, including the analysis of several crime prevention programs currently in use. This text will help broaden the reader's understanding of the relationship between the police, citizens, and crime prevention.

Book News Annotation:

Ten chapters address various aspects of the history, theory, and strategy of crime prevention. Several current crime prevention programs are analyzed and evaluated. Specific attention is given to the use of private security, environmental design, school security, public housing, gangs, and domestic violence. The importance of police and community cooperation is emphasized. No index.
