Situational crime prevention is the art and science of reducing
opportunities for crime. Despite accumulating evidence of its value
in reducing many different kinds of crime - such as burglary,
fraud, robbery, car theft, child sexual abuse and even terrorism -
little has previously been published about its role in reducing
organised crimes. This collection of case studies, by a
distinguished international group of researchers, fills this gap by
documenting the application of a situational prevention approach to
a variety of organised crimes. These include sex trafficking,
cigarette and drug smuggling, timber theft, mortgage fraud,
corruption of private professionals and public officials, and
subversion of tendering procedures for construction projects. By
moving the focus away from the nature of criminal organisations to
the analysis of the crimes committed by these organisations, the
book opens up a fresh agenda for policy and research. Situational
Prevention of Organised Crimes will be of interest to those tasked
with tackling organised crime problems, as well as those interested
in understanding the ways that organised crime problems have
manifested themselves globally, and how law enforcement and other
agencies might seek to tackle them in the future.
