CRJ 787 Seminar in Crime Analysis and Crime Prevention

This course provides the fundamentals of problem-solving crime analysis as needed for designing and implementing crime opportunity reducing projects. It begins with the theoretical background to the development of the crime triangle, or problem analysis triangle (PAT), and proceeds to more advanced analytical tools and techniques. It will then examine the various analytic and operational frameworks underlying different approaches to crime opportunity reduction, such as situational crime prevention (SCP) and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). Essentially this course integrates crime analysis and crime-specific, immediate and long-term practical prevention measures.
