Taking a Bite Out of Crime

Taking a Bite Out of Crime
The Impact of the National Citizens' Crime Prevention Media Campaign

October 1996 | 168 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This accessibly written book presents a case study of a major United States initiative aimed at increasing public awareness of how citizens can protect themselves and others from crime. It examines the development and content of the 14-year long campaign and evaluates its impact on the public. The state-of-the-art data presented from this extensive survey on the public's perceptions, attitudes and behaviours with respect to crime leads to the authors providing excellent recommendations for future campaigns.
