Situational Crime Prevention

Situational Crime Prevention discourages crime by doing things that make committing a crime more difficult, risky, or less rewarding or excusable. There is robust international evidence that several types of Situational Crime Prevention reduce crime, particularly property crime and public order offences. Evidence suggests that situational crime prevention is most likely to be effective if tailored to the particular context rather than through generic application such as widespread CCTV.
