This course examines the criminology theory that underpins evidence-based crime prevention approaches and initiatives that can be implemented at the local community, organisational and state level to reduce and prevent crime. Learn the tools, technologies and techniques that can be used to develop crime prevention interventions across diverse types of crime.
Combining theory and policy from national and international crime prevention initiatives, the course topics and assessment tasks take a practical approach to explore ‘what works’ when responding to real-world crime problems. A key focus of the course is the shared responsibility between communities, police, and governments to identify and respond to crime problems in our neighbourhoods, places of recreation and business environments.
