Book Description

This report is an evaluated overview of European practices for Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), and focuses on exemplars formed into a toolkit of crime and anti-social behaviour prevention strategies. The following tools were identified for detailed analysis and to form part of the toolkit: - Crime Opportunity Profiling of Streets (COPS), UK - Kids & Space, the Netherlands - Virtual CPTED, the Netherlands - Visual Inspection/Stickers to Safety, the Netherlands - Police Label Secured Housing, the Netherlands - Criminological Regional Analysis (CRA), Germany - Integrated Audits (in crime prevention and traffic safety), Germany The research demonstrated that the most effective approach across Europe combines: physical approaches, focusing on architecture, urban planning, target hardening, etc; social approaches focusing on victims, offenders, guardians, city management, maintenance, etc, and organisational approaches focusing on structuring the partnership process of implementing measures. Sixteen Annexes included on a CD Rom, provide case studies, supporting papers and presentations on the individual tools from the project partners, with numerous colour illustrations.
