Synopsis: The second collaboration between Poulin and Nemeth, proposes creating innovative approaches to crime control, reducing the level of victimization, and in turn, elevating the quality of life within high crime communities. Using a partnership between private, public and non-profit sectors and resources, the authors propose a new organization whose aim is to coordinate resources and public safety initiatives to transform the high crime community. The Prevention Agency posits a new world order of policing distressed communities. Using private sector justice professionals, in a pre-eminent and even dominant position as compared to the public law enforcement superstructure, shakes up the status quo. The text offers up this innovative organization as an alternative for communities and their beleaguered residents. The Prevention Agency, an uncanny blend of private, entrepreneurial, community and public resources, delivers not only change in how things are done, but also results which communities under siege can only presently dream of.
