Format: Paperback
An excellent introduction to understanding crime prevention within a theoretical, political and social context. Recommended to the learner who seeks to understand the principles and motives that underpin the developing priority of crime prevention within British politics and policing. In addition to this, the book outlines crime prevention initiatives and policy, including how these are acted on in practice.
