BULLOCK, K., FARRELL, G. and TILLEY, N, 2002. Funding and implementing crime reduction initiatives. London: Home Office Research and Statistics Directorate
This report describes some of the lessons learnt about problem analysis, project
planning and implementation from a series of policing projects set up as part the
government's three-year Crime Reduction Programme. The Crime Reduction
Programme seeks to encourage crime reduction projects with potential and to learn
from them lessons about how to be successful and how to avoid failure. The Targeted
Policing Initiative (TPI) has funded 59 projects that seek to reduce crime through the
use of problem-solving methodology and a range of these is being evaluated.
