Anthony A. Braga


Why have "problem-oriented policing" interventions been evaluated as effective in controlling a wide range of crime and disorder problems, ranging from burglaries and robberies, to prostitution and to various types of violence? By analyzing WHY these programs are effective, this book intends to broaden the use of this approach in everyday policing.Problem-oriented policing directs attention and resources to the underlying problems that lurk behind many recurring crimes. The author summarizes worldwide research on three types of interventions: (1) reducing opportunities for crime at problem-plagued PLACES (such as bars or housing projects) by enforcement-related or environmental measures; (2) targeting high-activity (repeat) OFFENDERS; and (3) protecting the VICTIMS of repeat offenses.The book concludes with ideas for improving current approaches to problem-oriented policing.Anthony A. Braga is the author of 'Problem-Oriented Policing and Crime Prevention', published 2002 under ISBN 9781881798415 and ISBN 1881798410.
