Crime Prevention: Approaches, Practices, and Evaluations, Tenth Edition, meets the needs of students and instructors for engaging, evidence-based, impartial coverage of interventions that can reduce or prevent deviance. This edition examines the entire gamut of prevention, from physical design to developmental prevention to identifying high-risk individuals to situational initiatives to partnerships and beyond. Strategies include primary prevention measures designed to prevent conditions that foster deviance; secondary prevention measures directed toward persons or conditions with a high potential for deviance; and tertiary prevention measures to deal with persons who have already committed crimes.

In this book, Lab offers a thorough and well-rounded discussion of the many sides of the crime prevention debate in clear and accessible language, including the latest research concerning space syntax, physical environment and crime, neighborhood crime prevention programs, community policing, crime in schools, and electronic monitoring and home confinement.

This book is essential for undergraduates studying criminal justice, criminology, and sociology, in the US and globally. Online resources include an instructor's manual, test bank, and lecture slides for faculty, and a wide array of resources for students.

Reviews for Crime Prevention: Approaches, Practices, and Evaluations

The Lab textbook was the only one that organized and delivered the information in a clear, well-written manner and meets most of our course objectives. Pam Brand, Human Development, State University of New York, College at Oswego I have listed the Steven Lab book as a recommended reading... I like that it has examples from around the world including Australia and New Zealand. Susan Robinson, Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security, Charles Sturt University
