Annotation: This study examines the role of crime prevention in impacting crime in the small community by the year 2000.
Abstract: Results suggest that to impact crime in the future, the role of crime prevention will be similar to what is practiced today. The police department will have to keep the community involved and informed on how they, the citizens, can fight crime. Alternative programs to be introduced into the community by the crime prevention unit and department as a whole include a Citizen Patrol Program and the cross training of all sworn department members in crime prevention techniques. Both alternatives are aimed at keeping the community and the officers informed and involved in the role of crime prevention. How law enforcement decides to implement crime prevention programs to impact crime in the community will depend on two factors: the police agency and the community. Whether the programs are administered by the traditional program methods or by the methods discussed in this study, it is clear that the community must be involved in some way. 10 graphs, 5 figures, 2 tables, 1 chart, 23 endnotes, 29 references, and appendix
