This subject introduces you to the field of crime prevention, which differs significantly from crime control. You will study opportunity-reducing measures that (1) are directed at specific offence problems, (2) involve environmental design considerations, and (3) elevate the risk and reduce the rewards of offending. You will differentiate between the four main approaches, developed globally, that comprise situational, developmental, community/social and environmental design. You will engage with analytical approaches, sets of techniques and practical applications of these forms of crime prevention, and analyse discrete situations, environments or crime types. You will develop professional skills in crime prevention through research exercises, case studies and practical applications.
- Critically appraise the schools or approaches to crime prevention and delineate the specific techniques adopted within each.
- Evaluate the empirical research on crime prevention initiatives both in Australia and internationally.
- Apply knowledge of the theory and practice of crime prevention to specific crime scenarios/cases.
