Prevention of crime. Urban planning and design. Urban planning

Cities all over the world are facing problems of insecurity and safety: urban violence and other forms of crime, feelings of insecurity caused by crime, graffiti and anti-social behaviour in the public sphere. These threats to the urban quality of life are obvious in most European cities.

Local and regional authorities generally react to these problems by more law enforcement input (police, private security services). However, now most European specialists agree that the actions needed to counteract the threats mentioned above have to be of an integrated and multi-disciplinary nature. Authorities and law enforcement specialists, as well as environmental specialists, city maintenance and management personnel, retailers and other business people, social workers, teachers and, last but not least, citizens are all stakeholders in this process.

This document gives guidelines on methods for assessing the risk of crime and/ or fear of crime and measures, procedures and processes aimed at reducing these risks.
