This is a unique module which will explore areas of contemporary criminological debate and policy around community safety and crime prevention, ranging from reducing burglaries in local neighbourhoods to preventing radicalisation of individuals from terrorist activity. You will consider issues such as crime displacement, evaluate the use of technology in facial recognition to crime mapping, all while debating the causal patterns of crime and deviance behaviour. Through your assessments you will be provided a unique opportunity to be a criminal justice professional utilising the content and material you have developed over the course of the module and your degree to apply crime prevention techniques and theories to a real world problem.
