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.
