MODELS OF CRIME PREVENTIONCrime prevention is contentious. Different people have differentconceptions as to what it ought to refer, and different agendas interms of the kinds of organisational and philosophical objectives theyare trying to meet. To appreciate the nature of these differences it isuseful to consider three abstract models of crime prevention (seeFigure 1). Each model identifies the key focus and concepts of aparticular approach, preferred strategies of intervention, dominantconception of "crime," the role of the "community" as part of thecrime prevention effort, and relationship to "law-and-order"strategies.In drawing up my presentation, I have drawn upon the work ofIadicola (1986), McNamara (1992), and Cunneen and White (1995),and have concentrated mainly on those community-based strategiesthat attempt to stop offending behaviour before it occurs.
