Crime Reduction Centre Digest

The Digest quarterly journal is published in January, April, July
and October by the Crime
Reduction Centre
Information Services Team and is issued to
Crime Reduction/Community Safety Practitioners nation wide.

When it began in the late 1980s, the Digest was as a means of
keeping students on Crime Prevention courses in touch with crime
prevention work. Since then it has developed into an important
medium for communicating and sharing crime reduction information
with practitioners, particularly those involved in Crime and
Disorder Reduction Partnerships.

The Editor gathers material through direct contributions,
environmental scanning and proactive sourcing of information but, as
the Digest is a forum for practitioners to share their ideas and
experiences, it relies heavily on practitioners’ contributions.

The Digest, including back issues, are available online here and
a PDF version is also available to practitioner organisations who
want to publish it on Intranets or print for wider use. For example,
some police forces copy relevant sections for working groups within
partnerships or Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators and available
