Content

This unit introduces students to the various ways in which we think about and respond to crime prevention and reduction. The unit examines the key policies and practices that have developed in Australia and internationally to address the 'problem of crime'. Examples include strategies to manipulate physical environments to reduce ‘opportunities’ for crime as well as measures taken to manage so-called ‘at-risk’ populations. In examining these approaches, the unit also develops an appreciation of the political, social, economic and cultural values expressed through crime prevention and reduction policies and programmes.
