Traditional "schools" of crime prevention, like the criminal justice model, social crime prevention or situational crime prevention, have proved to be too narrow and do not combine well with other approaches. However, each of these models provides important insights and contributions for reducing crime. By extracting the main preventive mechanisms of these diverse approaches, this book develops a more holistic, general model that consists of nine preventive mechanisms: building normative barriers to crime, reducing recruitment, deterrence, disruption, incapacitation, protecting vulnerable targets, reducing benefits of crime, reducing harm, and facilitating desistance.
 
The measures to activate the preventive mechanisms may differ according to the type of crime, as may the actors in charge of implementing the relevant measures. However, Tore Bjørgo demonstrates how his model of crime prevention can be effectively applied to diverse forms of crime, from domestic burglaries to criminal youth gangs and driving under the influence to organized crime and terrorism. In doing so, this important book will be of interest to scholars and students of policing, security studies and criminology, as well as practitioners and policy-makers.

About the Author:

Tore Bjørgo is Professor of Police Science at the Norwegian Police University College and adjunct research professor at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs. A social anthropologist by training, he received his doctoral degree from Leiden University, The Netherlands. His main fields of research are crime prevention, political extremism and terrorism, youth gangs, disengagement from violent groups, and policing.

Review:

"Preventing Crime is an ambitious book. The goal of the book is "to develop a general, comprehensive model for preventing crime". Though Tore Bjørgo is not the first to attempt such an undertaking, he is certainly among the most successful in such an endeavor. This book will prove to be required reading for those who study, formulate and apply crime prevention policy." - Scott H. Decker, PhD. Foundation Professor, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Arizona State University, USA
 
"[Tore Bjørgo's] ability to deduce a general framework for thinking about crime prevention, and to illustrate its applicability across different forms of criminality, adds significant value to the existing literature. [His] approach is at once theoretically grounded and analytically rigorous, while also having real-world implications in terms of ... thinking strategically about future efforts." - Peter Romaniuk, Associate Professor of Political Science, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York, USA
