Issues of crime and public safety directly affect people, and increasing globalization means that such issues will become more varied – so writes Laura Chapman, Executive Director of the Policy Research Secretariat (Canada). Examples of new crime and public safety concerns include computer hacking, international corruption, and international terrorism. Chapman argues societies must address root causes of criminal activity to enhance citizens’ confidence, trust, and safety. The complexity of threats requires strategic research and alternative crime prevention approaches.
