Evaluation in crime prevention is universally regarded as essential, but many problems have been encountered in ensuring that this is carried out effectively - both in relation to specific initiatives as well as the forms of partnerships that are now being widely promoted. This book is concerned primarily with the design and conduct of evaluations that are intended to help improve crime prevention policy and practice - through providing feedback that will generate corrections and refinements in crime, prevention theory, policy and practice. ""Evaluation for Crime Prevention"" makes a highly significant contribution to this process, drawing on lessons learned in a variety of international contexts.
