Crime Prevention: Approaches, Practices, and Evaluations, 9th Edition, meets the needs of students and instructors for engaging, evidence-based, impartial coverage of the origins of crime, as well as of public policy that can reduce or prevent deviance. The book examines a range of approaches to preventing crime and elucidates their respective goals. Strategies include primary prevention measures designed to prevent conditions that foster deviance; secondary prevention measures directed toward persons or conditions with a high potential for deviance; and tertiary prevention measures to deal with persons who have already committed crimes.

This edition provides research and information on all aspects of crime prevention, including the physical environment and crime, neighborhood crime prevention programs, community policing, crime in schools, and electronic monitoring and home confinement. Lab offers a thorough and well-rounded discussion of the many sides of the crime prevention debate, in clear and accessible language.

Review:

This is a clear and comprehensive approach to crime prevention. The focus of the book is applied and practical, which makes it ideal for the classroom. The new edition provides an excellent in-depth coverage of what works in crime prevention, and how prevention programs are evaluated to assess their impact on crime and fear of victimization. It is an essential resource for both students and practitioners.

- Jonathan Kremser, Kutztown University

This book, in comparison to others I have seen, offers the widest coverage regarding the different possible approaches to crime prevention―it addresses strategies as diverse as environmental design, block-watch initiatives, media-driven public service announcements, community-oriented policing, correctional rehabilitation, and many, many more. As such, it provides students with the foundation for an impressive breadth of knowledge regarding crime prevention.

-Pamela WilcoxUniversity of Cincinnati

I have used Professor Lab’s text on crime prevention and found that his crime prevention typology is great for the classroom. Grouping tactics by primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention allows students to really think about some of the underlying factors driving these crimes and gives them some basis for critiquing the initial efficacy of a program. This text is great for students and professionals alike.

-Eric Martin, George Washington University
