Crime Prevetion

literature review should present a synthesis of the research evidence (national and
international scholarly and other credible sources) regarding the effectiveness of crime prevention
approaches that might be suitable. The literature review should be formatted as follows:
• Introduction: briefly outlines the problem and introduces the content of the review;
• Body paragraphs: a number of separate paragraphs summarizing and comparing the
research evidence regarding a range of crime prevention approaches;
• Conclusion that makes recommendations (an argument) as to which crime prevention
approaches are most likely to be effective;
• Reference List (alphabetical, not included in word count)
The Literature Review should include Harvard or APA in-text referencing throughout, and be
formatted in 12pt font (Times New Roman or Calibri) with 1.5 line spacing and with justified
(straight) edges.
