CRIME PREVENTION AT LOCAL LEVEL

Client: Justiitsministeerium

Period: 2014

There is general consensus that crime prevention is most effective when planned and delivered locally, as local communities understand best the problems and needs of community and therefore can deliver targeted and effective response. This study was to analyse the current situation of crime prevention at the local level, focusing particularly on youth crime prevention. The report gives an overview of the preventive activities implemented, the cooperation between the organizations involved in crime prevention and the funding of crime prevention.

In addition, the report includes suggestions for improving crime prevention coordination at the government level.
