The study of crime prevention and community safety encompasses a range of theoretical and analytical frameworks that address both proximal and distal causes of crime and other deviant behaviour. The main theories of crime prevention (eg routine activity, crime pattern and rational choice) inform criminal justice policy strategies at several levels of intervention - primary, secondary and tertiary. Community safety programmes tend to be collaborative and localised in nature, and are intended to be democratically empowering. This subject also examines practical elements of programme design, implementation and evaluation through the selective use of local and international case studies.
