This 2nd edition features a revised and extended classification of 16 techniques of situational crime prevention, 13 new case studies and over 300 new references."Situational Crime Prevention should be required reading for anyone interested in innovation in policing. It offers a wide range of techniques that the police can use to reduce the problems that constitute their business. The superb collection of case studies persuasively illustrates how novel approaches to old problems can be developed and their effectiveness proven through rigorous evaluation. The book goes to the heart of what policing is all about."Professor Herman Goldstein, University of Wisconsin
