Description
Crime drains our society of billions of dollars every year and takes an appalling toll in terms of death and fear. Eliminating crime entirely is not possible, but prevention is. Police officers bravely patrol our cities and towns to keep us safe. But they cannot do it alone. There are many things we can do to help protect ourselves against crime. Under the expert guidance of police forces, ordinary citizens throughout the United States have come together to defend themselves and their neighbors against criminals. The success of such programs has already been extraordinary, but much more remains to be done. As this book shows, combating crime with a police-community partnership is by far the best defense. With special emphasis on actual projects in crime-stricken communities around the world, Stopping Crime reveals how police and public can work together for the good of everyone. Book jacket.
