Crime Prevention in Places

A review of studies of various crime prevention strategies by John Eck.


"Most places have no crimes and most crime is highly concentrated in and around a relatively small number of places. If we can prevent crime at these high crime places, then we might be able to reduce total crime. Do we have evidence that this is feasible?"

"Nuisance abatement is a place-focused tactic that 'works.' With the evidence available we are relatively certain that holding private landlords accountable for drug dealing on their property by threatening abatement reduces drug related crimes."
