Summary: This report provides practical guidance on the evidence-based approach in crime prevention, proposes a step-by-step framework to guide program selection and implementation, and suggests key elements for sustainability.
Highlights: This report has been developed to provide some answers to questions on the use of evidence-based programs by practitioners and policy makers. Evidence-based crime prevention programs can get better results than traditional programs, but to achieve the expected results, it is necessary that the right program is selected for the right clientele and that it is implemented using effective strategies. This report, without being exhaustive, provides practical guidance to help individuals better understand the evidence-based approach in crime prevention, proposes a step-by-step framework to guide them during program selection and implementation, and also suggests key elements for sustainability. This guide is an updated and more detailed version of a publication previously posted on Public Safety Canada's website (Guide to Select Promising and Model Crime Prevention Programs; 2012)
