crime prevention evaluation
alcohol related violence
|Abstract:||Evidence-based crime prevention requires sound evaluations to be conducted. Unfortunately, few crime prevention programs in Australia are ever rigorously evaluated. This can result in promising initiatives being de-funded and popular, but not necessarily successful, programs being adopted. Crime prevention practitioners often feel ill-equipped to conduct evaluations. This one-day training course will help practitioners to: feel more confident in understanding evaluation reports; develop evaluation plans; and contract external evaluators. Through the use of three case studies (focusing on public space closed-circuit television systems, prevention efforts to address alcohol-related problems and youth diversionary programs), this practical training course helped to equip practitioners with evaluation skills and knowledge. The following staff from the Australian Institute of Criminology and the Sydney Institute of Criminology delivered the training: • Peter Homel • Katie Willis • Anthony Morgan • Jess Anderson • Garner Clancey CCTV, liquor accord and Midnight Basketball case studies were covered in the training and presentations are made available here.|
