Abstract

Round 1 of the Reducing Burglary Initiative (RBI) was built upon a strong evidence base of operational research, which had identified types of measures that can be effective in reducing burglary in local areas. A key objective of the RBI was to find out what works best where. Sixty three Strategic Development Projects (SDPs) were funded by Round 1 of the RBI. These projects were encouraged to develop innovative burglary reduction strategies. As a result, a wide range of interventions was implemented in a variety of contexts making use of different principles. This paper presents a summary of one of these SDPs where the main intervention methods implemented were: - Target hardening vulnerable properties - Installation of alley gates - Installation of electronic entry systems for multi-dwelling properties - Improvements to street lighting - Provision of access to leisure facilities for young people in the ‘open’ environment and in organised leisure facilities. - Outreach work with local young people.
