BJA/IADLEST Webinar - Strategic Crime Analysis: Reducing Hot Spots and Solving Problems

A key element of crime reduction is tackling long-term and chronic hot spots and other problems: multiple crimes with common factors whose recurrence can often be predicted. Such long-term problems rarely respond to enforcement and arrests, but must be solved with targeted strategies aimed at removing the opportunity for the crimes to occur.
