Abstract: THE NAHRO (NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOUSING AND REDEVELOPMENT OFFICIALS)/HUD ANTI-CRIME CONFERENCE WAS HELD ON SEPTEMBER 12-13, 1978, IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

PHA PARTICIPANTS INCLUDED PUBLIC HOUSING RESIDENTS, MANAGEMENT AND SECURITY STAFFS. RESPONSIBILITY FOR SECURITY, IDENTIFICATION OF ANTI-CRIME SECURITY ISSUES IN PHA'S PROJECTS, IDENTIFICATION OF ACTIONS TAKEN TO ADDRESS THE SECURITY PROBLEMS, AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE ELEMENTS OF A VIABLE ANTI-CRIME PROGRAM WERE THE MAIN TOPICS OF DISCUSSION. THE SECOND CONFERENCE, THE AIR (AMERICAN INSTITUTES FOR RESEARCH)/HUD CONFERENCE ON REDUCING CRIME IN AND AROUND PUBLIC HOUSING, WAS HELD OCTOBER 2-3, 1978, IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AMONG THE SUBJECTS DISCUSSED WERE THE GOALS OF THE ANTI-CRIME DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM; PHYSICAL, SOCIAL, AND OTHER FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROBLEMS OF CRIME AND THE FEAR OF CRIME IN AND AROUND PUBLIC HOUSING; PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION ISSUES, INCLUDING STATE-OF-THE-ART KNOWLEDGE OF CRIME PREVENTION, DESIGNING A CRIME-REDUCTION PROGRAM, USING ALL AVAILABLE RESOURCES, AND FLEXIBLE PROGRAM GUIDELINES; A BROADER VIEW OF IMPLEMENTING AN ANTI-CRIME PROGRAM; AND THE PRODUCTION OF KNOWLEDGE, WHICH ALSO INVOLVES EVALUATION.
