Crime prevention: An introduction

This chapter has two main aims. Firstly, it aims to introduce some of the concepts and terms that are commonly used in crime prevention (section A) and secondly, it aims to look at the conceptual frame of reference for crime prevention laid out in the Guidelines for the Prevention of Crime, including the central importance of collective approaches and the role of Governments, the benefits that sustained prevention strategies and programmes can bring, the principles on which such strategies should be based, and other international instruments that support preventive approaches (section B).
