Delivering crime prevention : making the evidence work

Carlton Crest Hotel, Sydney
22 November 2005

Introduction

This conference examined the role of evidence-based policy (EBP) approaches in the development and delivery of crime prevention policies and programs in Australia today. The different models for EBP programs were critically assessed in terms of their appropriateness and effectiveness in informing and improving practical crime prevention policy and on-ground working. Barriers to the successful implementation of evidence-based initiatives were reviewed and possible solutions explored.
