Research a prevention program

timer Asked: Jun 15th, 2015

Question description

Crime prevention can be driven by national programs, but it's often grass roots efforts at the local level that most promote prevention. Programs such as Drug Abuse Resistance Education, for example, are national in scope but implemented at the local level by individual communities.

For this assignment, do some research on a local crime prevention program in your area. Then, in a 1-2 page paper, do the following:

  • Describe the main elements of the program you chose and how they work
  • Identify the specific theory or theories of crime upon which you believe the program is built
  • Discuss specific outcomes of the program, including outcome measures (if available)
  • Provide your opinion about the program's effectiveness in preventing crime
