Evaluation in crime prevention is universally regarded as essential, but many problems have been encountered in ensuring that this is carried out effectively - both in relation to specific initiatives as well as the forms of partnerships that are now being widely promoted.;This book is concerned primarily with the design and conduct of evaluations that are intended to help improve crime prevention policy and practice - through providing feedback that will generate corrections and refinements in crime, prevention theory, policy and practice. ""Evaluation for Crime Prevention"" makes a highly significant contribution to this process, drawing on lessons learned in a variety of international contexts.
