Action Briefs


  • Recent Development in Effective Crime Prevention - Action Brief (2016.0)

    Municipalities face street violence, violence against women and property crime as well as unsustainable increases in policing costs. Scientific evidence confirms that prevention has reduced these problems. The challenge is getting more investment in prevention in more municipalities.

  • Why Invest in Crime Prevention in Municipalities? - Action Brief (2016.1)

    Interpersonal crime does $55 billion in harm to citizens annually. The accumulated evidence justifies smart investments in prevention as the most cost effective way to reduce crime. The majority of Canadians support these investments.

  • Making Cities Safer - Action Brief (2009)

    This action brief is organized into two major themes. The first theme, series 1: “Invest smartly in safety for the city”, articulates why cities should invest in crime prevention and discusses strategies for ways in which cities can invest in crime prevention. The second theme, series 2: “tackle safety successfully in the city” discusses strategies for improving safety and reducing violence and crime in various populations (i.e., youth and young adults, women, Aboriginal people) as well as reducing property crime and utilizing policing resources more efficiently and effectively.
