Mobilizing the Nation To Prevent Crime, Violence, and Drug Abuse, CPCA’s 2006 annual report, celebrates the work of Coalition members, highlighting the breadth and diversity of prevention efforts in communities across the nation. The report reflects creative and innovative crime prevention activities that use a broad spectrum of approaches. Examples include the Girl Scouts of the USA’s P.A.V.E. program, Neighborhood Watch, and McGruff® Club, as well as state and local efforts, such as the Wired Blocks Network, Inc., community and law enforcement e-network program, and the Kupuna ID project in Hawaii. As always, this report reflects only a small portion of the work being accomplished every day to help keep people and communities safe from crime. Coalition members should have received a copy of the report. You can also order additional single copies, which are free (plus shipping and handling); bulk copies are $1 each. To order, please call 800-NCPC-911.
In 1990, the Crime Prevention Coalition of America promulgated 11 principles for effective crime prevention and published them in Call to Action. This report, which updates that document, is designed to renew a commitment to crime prevention. The ten action principles in Engaging the Power of Prevention describe quality crime prevention efforts. They outline what features these programs should have, regardless of topic, audience, setting, or medium. They draw from experience and research, and they make it clear that good crime prevention requires broad engagement, good information, collaboration as well as cooperation, focus from policing agencies, and strong leadership. The payoff is that children, youth and adults are safer. Neighborhoods are safer and more vibrant. Communities are stronger and more vital. These ten principles can help us focus on strategies that meet the crime prevention needs of the 21st century.
