Annotation: These discussion papers, prepared for the Ad Hoc Working Group on the International Exchange of Crime Prevention Information, discuss crime prevention in Australia, Canada, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Abstract: The papers are intended to benefit not only policymakers and crime prevention experts and leaders but also communities and organizations actively involved in implementing and promoting innovative crime prevention activities. In Australia, general responsibility for law enforcement is shared between Federal, State, and Territory Police Forces. Crime prevention focuses on such approaches as community policing, national policing, police use of the media, intergovernmental cooperation, substance abuse prevention, and commercial and residential security. The Crime Prevention/Victim Services Branch is the policy and operational support unit for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Crime prevention efforts in Canada pertain to victim services, community-based policing, drug awareness and education, family violence and spousal assault, and youth and the police. In Sweden, the National Council for Crime Prevention is a separate agency under the Ministry of Justice. Crime prevention in Sweden encompasses victims, criminal networks, crimes reported to the police, deviant activities of children and youth, building site theft, and spectator violence. The paper on crime prevention in the United Kingdom looks at guidelines, practices, research, local initiatives, and information services. Crime prevention in the United States is examined in terms of national-level efforts, citizen-based prevention, the power of advertising, information services, partnerships among agencies involved in crime prevention activities, crime prevention training, and education of children.
