Abstract

This research will contribute to the work of the What Works Centre for Crime Reduction, hosted by the UK College of Policing. The aim of this particular review is to identify existing systematic reviews within the crime reduction area. Subsequent research will involve coding the identified reviews along a number of dimensions, to include their approach and methodological adequacy. There will also be an emphasis on understanding not simply what works, but how it works. This protocol does not detail how the latter will be accomplished but how the reviews will be identified, along with the scope of the review. This protocol and the activities undertaken under Work Package 1 (WP1) are one element of four work packages (WP1,WP3, WP4, WP5) that are devoted to answering the general research question: What can systematic review evidence tell us about the effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and conditions for optimal implementation of interventions aimed at preventing and reducing crime? How can we best communicate this evidence to crime prevention practitioners?
