Rural crime has long been overlooked in the field of crime prevention. Sustained academic interrogation is necessary, therefore, to reduce the extensive economic and social costs of rural crime as well as to challenge some of the myths regarding the prevention of rural crime.

Rural Crime Prevention: Theory, Tactics and Techniques critically analyses, challenges, considers and assesses a suite of crime prevention initiatives across an array of international contexts. This book recognises the diversity and distinct features of rural places and the ways that these elements impact on rates, experiences and responses. Crucially, Rural Crime Prevention also incorporates non-academic voices which are embedded throughout the book, linking theory and scholarship with practice.

Proactive responses to rural offending based on sound evidence can serve to facilitate feelings of safety and security throughout communities, enhance individual wellbeing and alleviate pressure on the overburdened and typically under-resourced formal elements of the criminal justice system. This book provides an opportunity to focus on the prevention of crime in regional, rural and remote parts of the globe.

An accessible and compelling read, this book will appeal to students and scholars of criminology, policing, sociology and practitioners interested in learning about the best-practice international approaches to rural crime prevention in the twenty-first century.

Index

This compilation of research on crime prevention in rural communities from around the world highlights the diversity of crimes that impact rural spaces as well as the commonalities in the way rural people experience and respond to crime. This is a valuable contribution to furthering global knowledge and understanding of rural criminology.

Rural Prevention: Theory, Tactics and Prevention is another milestone in rural criminology's development... a book that addresses crime, theory, prevention and justice in many parts of the world. Even more significantly, it does so by placing chapters by academics next to narratives by practitioners. There is no better example of praxis in criminology than a series of tandem readings on the same subject. So, my friends - buy extra Sharpies, for without doubt, you will be highlighting a great deal of this book.

Rural crime is in many respects both unique and ubiquitous. It therefore requires specific crime prevention approaches and techniques that address the complicated needs of the people, animals, plants and ecosystems inhabiting rural spaces. Drawing upon examples from Australia, North America, South Africa, Mexico and the United Kingdom, Rural Crime Prevention provides a vital stepping stone for enhanced global dialogue on preventing crime in non-urban settings.





Rob White


Distinguished Professor of Criminology


University of Tasmania, Australia








For most criminologists who might never have considered rural crime, this book considerably expands the subject matter of the discipline. From its origins in Australia, the book includes contributions from many countries and regions of the world. The interweaving of practitioners' perspectives brings the academic discussions to life. Altogether, Rural Crime Prevention provides an enlightening and thought-provoking read.
