Then for each of the five situational crime prevention categories, you will answer the following: the general category (increase risk, increase effort, reduce rewards, reduce provocations, remove excuses); which of the five crime prevention techniques within that general category (e.g., screen exits, deny benefits), and a description of how the technique would be carried out for your specific problem.
