Bringing together leading scholars from the UK, US, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to and overview of current thinking and research relating to crime prevention and community safety. Building on the success of the first edition, Tilley and Sidebottom offer a fully revised and updated ‘state of the art’ of contemporary research and policy, including substantive sections on approaches to crime prevention, methodology, prevention in practice and the preventative process.

New to the second edition are chapters on theories for crime prevention, the changing face of crime prevention, deterrence, incapacitation, contemporary police procedure, regulation, organized crime, sexual crimes, cybercrimes, crime analysis and implementation. This book includes contributions from leading voices such as Ron Clarke, Graham Farrell, Paul Ekblom, John Eck and Gloria Laycock. It is essential reading for courses on crime prevention, community safety, responses to crime and crime analysis.
