Neighborhood-oriented policing in rural communities : a program planning guide( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is targeted at citizens and law enforcement officials in rural and small town settings who are working to redirect police resources to achieve greater effectiveness in handling public safety problems including crime and fear of crime, drug abuse, violence, and disorder. Although different variations of neighborhood-oriented policing have emerged, most incorporate the same two important ingredients, namely, community engagement and problemsolving. In this monograph, following the introduction, two chapters have an external focus, explaining from the police agency's perspective, how to initiate greater community participation and how to identify and analyze community needs. The two following chapters describe, from a more internal focus, how to take stock and asses police organizational needs and how to implement the decisionmaking process. The final two chapters integrate the external and internal viewpoints and focus on planning, implementation, and evaluation. The monograph also contains information including suggested reading, national resource agencies, problemsolving guides, a sample policy agency mission statement, and suggestions for planning and management

10 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teenagers play a critical role in the crime situation. Though it is well known that teenagers commit a disproportionate number of crimes in our country, it is not well known that teenagers are also the age group most victimized by personal crimes. Also not well recognized is the enormous amount of energy and talent teens can contribute to making their communities safer. The whole Teens, Crime, and the Community initiative is based on the premise that crime victimizes us individually and collectively, and that crime prevention solutions involve both watching out and helping out. - Preface

Less hype, more help : reducing juvenile crime, what works - and what doesn't by Richard A Mendel( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this report is to foster a national discussion about the complex and important challenges posed by youth crime in America, and to raise public awareness about promising approaches to youth crime that currently receive too little attention and too few resources. The report is divided into three sections. Part One details the wealth of new knowledge about the causes and cures for delinquency and youth violence that has been generated by researchers and practitioners over the past two decades, including new models that are dramatically reducing recidivism by youthful offenders and the on-set of delinquency by high-risk youth. Part Two examines two popular notions that have monopolized the public debate in recent years: (1) that youth crime is growing worse due to a generation of "juvenile superpredators"; and (2) that "adult time for adult crime" should be the basis for juvenile crime policy. These notions have prevented policymakers from recognizing the tremendous potential created by the advances in prevention and intervention techniques. Part Three looks at the nation's juvenile justice systems and the varied efforts to prevent delinquency and violence. Finally, this report issues a series of recommendations-strategic action to surmount the formidable obstacles to reform that now prevent state and local juvenile justice and delinquency prevention systems from doing what works. Appendix I is "Reducing Juvenile Crime: Recommendations from America's Police Chiefs" and Appendix II is " The Costs of Juvenile Crime." (Contains 218 endnotes.) (Author/MKA)

Making a difference : young people in community crime prevention by Jean F O'Neil( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document discusses the involvement of teenagers in community crime prevention. It gives the justification, methods, successes, and problems of crime prevention programs in which young people participate. Several reasons for involving teenagers are given: teenagers need to develop a sense of community, they are often the victims of crime, and they have useful services to offer. Two chapters offer "primers" in community crime prevention and youth potential in these prevention programs. Teenage involvement in crime prevention programs in cities, suburbs, and rural areas with a variety of sponsors including law enforcement agencies, schools, youth groups, and community agencies is described. The characteristics of good programs, including resources, adult mentors, amd community support are noted. The problems existing crime prevention groups have encountered such as lack of adult involvement, adult domination, lack of rules, insufficient funding, and transportation problems are discussed. Twenty-eight programs throughout the United States and two from Canada are summarized with addresses and telephone numbers. (ABL)
350 tested strategies to prevent crime : a resource for municipal agencies and community groups by Washington, Dc National Crime Prevention Council( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past few years, there has been a groundswell of community partnerships to prevent crime and drug abuse. This compilation presents prevention strategies, rather than programs, to help communities focus on adapting and tailoring program ideas and crime prevention techniques to local needs and circumstances. The strategies described are real-life approaches rather than textbook theories. Each strategy is illustrated with program examples. The 350 strategies are grouped into the following categories: (1) public education; (2) community mobilization; (3) youth programs and dropout prevention; (4) law-enforcement and community links; (5) safe and attractive public places in cities and in schools; (6) economic development; (7) violence; (8) drugs; (9) bias crimes; and (10) property crime. Chapters highlight key components, partnerships, and obstacles for each strategy. A reference bibliography concludes each chapter, and a resource guide provides information on 109 groups with resources and program examples. (Sld)
