    The purpose of this report is to provide some useful lessons relating to the
    implementation of crime prevention interventions. To do this, we will examine the Crime
    Theme activities of one NDC Partnership in detail. The research has two main
    elements. The first is to consider the processes involved in selecting appropriate crime
    reduction initiatives. For instance, why is a particular intervention relevant in a
    particular area or time, and what is the likely causal mechanisms through which it might
    work? Such an understanding can also inform monitoring and evaluation. For instance,
    by helping to identify what should change as a result of an intervention, and hence what
    data is needed to evaluate the scheme. This should also assist with the development
    and evolution of interventions; when changes are made, the consequences of these on
    the mechanism through which crime will be reduced, needs to be considered. And
    second, to discuss the types of methods currently available for evaluating scheme
    success and how these relate to the first aim of the research.
