Providing crime prevention policy makers and practitioners with evidence-based resources and training to prevent and reduce crime.

About the Crime Prevention ASSIST Program

The Australian Institute of Criminology’s Crime Prevention ASSIST has been established to improve crime prevention knowledge transfer and to enhance the skills and capacity of those engaged in crime prevention to more effectively manage and evaluate their work. This is being achieved through three areas of service delivery:

  • production of applied crime prevention resources
  • training and professional development in crime prevention evaluation
  • funded research and evaluation services.

Work of Crime Prevention ASSIST builds on crime prevention theory and the best available evidence about good practice in crime prevention.
