In this book a distinguished international team of contributors address the question of analysis for crime prevention, as distinct from analysis of crime prevention. It is oriented towards the generation of preventive strategies, in three key ways: identifies concentrations of crime or particular offences where there is a potential yield for preventive effect; helps find the most efficient and effective means of prevention; and helps to forecast likely future crime problems.
