"The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it."
Robert Peel's Nine Principles

A very thorough discussion of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

"Traditionally, police have handled each incident or call for service as a separate and fairly unique occurrence. For example, most commercial burglaries have been addressed individually: an officer has taken a report from the victim and attempted to identify the offender and recover stolen property. The responding officer might have also counseled the victim in general crime prevention techniques and attempted to link a series of commercial burglaries to one offender.
But the incidents have not typically been analyzed as a group to learn why and how the crimes have occurred repeatedly, and how they could have been prevented."
