Crime Prevention policy is a criminological course which aims to introduce students to central concepts and issues in the emerging crime prevention literature and practice. The course is socio-legal in orientation, although there is scope for discussion of legal regimes in relation to specific topics. The knowledge of theoretical and practical developments will be applied to specific local contexts and the major Research Assignment is directed to this end. The course introduces students to theories and practices of crime prevention and should be of particular interest to people wishing to develop greater knowledge of criminology and criminal justice.
