Annotation: Interagency crime prevention projects in England were investigated with respect to identity and ownership, information collection about crime problems, resources, effectiveness, race and gender issues, and training issues.
Abstract: A positive role was played by the media in many interagency crime prevention projects. Consultation and specific ownership of crime prevention measures were also important. Variations occurred in the collection and analysis of information about crime problems, but many projects relied almost exclusively on police crime statistics. It was determined that interagency crime prevention projects should have accurate information. Funding arrangements for crime prevention were perceived by many to be ad hoc and uncoordinated. Further, procedures for monitoring project effectiveness appeared to be inadequate. The research also found that race and gender issues emerged in the interagency setting and that training of key project participants was essential. Interagency crime prevention projects visited in the course of the research are listed in an appendix. 14 references
