Professional Recommendation to Stop Crime

recommendation to stop crime

A recommendation to stop crime usually comes from some professional crime prevention organization. Such organizations are most often associated with the federal government, local police, or other components of the criminal justice system.

Crime prevention requires an understanding of the three elements requisite for a criminal act to occur. First, the criminal must possess the motivation or the desire to commit the crime.

Second, the criminal must possess the skills and/or the tools necessary to commit the crime. Finally, the criminal must have the opportunity to commit the crime.

These three elements are often referred to in law enforcement as "motive, means, and opportunity." To stop crime, a preventive measure must focus on eliminating one or more of these three elements.

Do You Think Cameras Deter or Prevent Crime? Experts Say No

do you think cameras deter or prevent crime

If you ask some experts the question "do you think cameras deter or prevent crime," you might get a resounding "no." More and more criminal experts are refuting the idea that crime cameras actually work.

When cities and businesses need the cameras to work, they often fall short. For example, New Orleans has installed cameras throughout the city to catch criminals in the act.

However, city residents and city council members were outraged when a shooting took place and the crime camera that should have caught it all was not rolling at the time.

Perhaps the most damaging consequence of the cameras not rolling when they should be is the message that malfunction sends to criminals. If they believe there is a good chance the cameras won't work when they commit a crime, there is little deterrent to prevent them from doing so.

Firefighters Help Prevent Crime in Schools

firefighters help prevent crime

A new experiment has firefighters collaborating with local and federal authorities to assume a new role. The purpose of the experiment is to see if firefighters help prevent crime in schools.

One school has already tried the experiment. Garfield Middle School theorized that any uniformed presence can help deter crime, and firefighters are no exception.

So far, the plan has worked. After stationing uniformed firefighters throughout the school during regular hours, school crime has dropped substantially.

The results are encouraging and may lead other schools to recruit local firefighters to patrol school grounds to help contain violence and other criminal activity. Firefighters often have down time on their shifts, so the school patrol allows them to make the most of their time on duty.
