clear What Are Publications?

Publications can be anything from a one-page flier to a brochure, from a poster to a book. They can be used as a support tool for a larger project or can be the main focus of a project. Publications are relatively easy to create, yet can be very effective for helping to fight crime because:

  • They can be printed or photocopied more cheaply than other communications.

  • They can be distributed in a large number of places.

  • They allow readers to absorb information at their own pace.

  • They can be used more than once.

Whatever form they take, all publications go through a development process that includes several steps.
