This book, Situational Prevention of Organised Crimes, is a collection of papers that examine the scope for tackling organized crimes through the use of situational techniques.
The introductory chapter of this book begins with a description of situational crime prevention, a crime fighting technique that focuses on crimes rather than criminals by targeting the near causes of crime events. This technique attempts to identify ways to diminish the opportunity for the commission of crimes. A table listing 25 techniques of situational crime prevention is included in this chapter along with a discussion on the nature of organized crime and how situational crime prevention can be used to fight it. Recommendations for future research and policy agendas are also discussed. The remaining chapters of the book are a collection of papers that illustrate and extend the application of situational crime prevention to organized crime in a variety of different ways.
