How to apply the model to a specific form of crime

To develop the prevention model into a prevention strategy, each of the nine mechanisms must be specified for the actual type of crime or crime problem.

The analysis can be based on this structure:

  • How do the various preventive mechanisms work to reduce this specific crime problem?
  • Which measures or methods can be used to activate these mechanisms?
  • Who are the principal actors in the implementation of the various methods?
  • Who are the target groups for the various strategies and their relevant measures?
  • What are the strengths and the positive side effects of the various measures?
  • What are the limitations, costs and negative side effects of the various measures?

See examples of how the model can be applied to different forms of crime.
