This text provides brief descriptions of the more well-known and recent crime prevention approaches, together with results of evaluative research into the effectiveness of each. Primary prevention approaches are examined including environmental design, neighborhood approaches, and general and specific deterrence approaches. Secondary prevention activities examined include prediction of crime and delinquency, diversion, school-based approaches, ecological crime analysis, and neighborhood dispute resolution. Tertiary interventions examined include criminal sanctions, incapacitation, and rehabilitation programs. Evaluation of these approaches emphasizes effects on crime rates and fear of crime.
