Summary Crime prevention that works - the goal of much government and corporate policy - can be difficult to discover amongst obscure and tedious academic texts. Yet, now more than ever, we need sophisticated government and corporate crime prevention policies that produce results. This book of research, policy and practice provides a clear and up-to-date guide to what works and what constitutes best practice across a range of crime prevention and security management applications and issues. It also fills a gap in the literature in regard to the integration of environmentally-based crime prevention science and applied security work. Aimed primarily at a practitioner audience, it is a concise and informative entre into the field and helps convey some of the main principles, methods and sources in crime prevention. Guidance on further secondary research is also provided. A must read for all crime prevention project managers, security managers, policy officers, students, and researchers.
