Crime Prevention: Approaches, Practices, and Evaluations, Ninth Edition, meets the needs of students and instructors for engaging, evidence-based, impartial coverage of the origins of crime, as well as of public policy that can reduce or prevent deviance. The book examines a range of approaches to preventing crime and elucidates their respective goals. Strategies include primary prevention measures designed to prevent conditions that foster deviance; secondary prevention measures directed toward persons or conditions with a high potential for deviance; and tertiary prevention measures to deal with persons who have already committed crimes.

This companion site offers an array of resources for students and instructors.

A selection of student resource documents are available—many of them tied to the “On the Web” boxes in the textbook and others provided for additional study. In addition, the student site contains learning aids including practice quizzes, online flash cards, and case study scenarios with questions and suggested answers.

The password-protected instructor site provides a sample syllabus, a list of potential homework assignments, a PowerPoint presentation deck for each chapter, and a test bank.

Because Chapter 17 offers closing thoughts on crime prevention and the future, no test bank questions or student learning resources have been provided for that chapter.
