Crime Prevention Project, Phase Two: Implementing a Crime Prevention Project

This chapter focuses on the second phase of the crime prevention process: implementing the plan. It is not the intention of this chapter to describe the substantive aspects of crime prevention strategies (e.g., social developmental, situational, community mobilization, restorative justice, and community policing) as these have been examined in Chapters 2 through 7. Instead, this chapter discusses some of the key factors that must be considered for the successful implementation of a crime prevention project. In particular, the topics addressed in this chapter are as follows:

Mobilizing the neighborhood (effective community-organizing strategies)

• Community outreach and communication • Micro-level organization • Reaching out to and involving those who do not become active • Leadership • Working with volunteers • Partnerships and team building

Determining the type of organization that will carry out the crime prevention activities.
