Abstract: The articles in this issue contribute to more public and inclusive discussions and debates about how to move toward an effective and accountable national crime prevention strategy. Such a strategy must concentrate energy and resources where they are needed most, provide adequate and sustainable resources to assure the work gets done, and engage the public in this work. Three major challenges to the implementation and sustainability of a comprehensive and integrated approach to crime prevention and community safety must be addressed. The papers and comments in this volume will address these challenges: the inability to develop a common language around goals and indicators or to provide the data necessary to assess the nature and prevalence of problems, target initiatives, and assess the impact; solutions will have to be complex and complicated; and prevention planning should adopt a problem-solving approach. A strategy must concentrate energy and resources where they are the most needed, provide adequate and sustainable resources to assure the work gets done, and engage the public in this work. Representatives from the Federal, provincial and territorial, and municipal orders of government were invited to reflect on the work.
