EUCPN webinar: Does crime prevented mean crime displaced?
Why implement anti-burglary interventions when, as a result, burglars will merely relocate their activities to another nearby area? It is sometimes believed that implementing prevention interventions, such as CCTV cameras, will simply cause offenders to shift their activities to different locations, change their methods or find new targets. Yet this is only one of the possible outcomes an intervention can bring about. In practice, crime displacement is often outweighed by two other outcomes: a ceasing of crime and the diffusion of crime prevention benefits.
During this webinar the EUCPN mythbuster "Does crime prevented mean crime displaced?" will be presented, followed by a Q&A session. “Mythbusters” are short papers focused on a common misconception in the crime prevention field & aim to support practitioners and policymakers to be more effective in their work. The webinar takes place on Thursday 15 September 2022 between 14:00 - 14:30 CET. Participation is free but registration is mandatory. The access link will be sent prior to the webinar.
