Abstract

What works to reduce crime? How should offenders be dealt with so that they do not reoffend? What methods of preventing crime are most cost-effective? These are all questions to which citizens, as well as government officials, policy makers, practitioners, researchers, teachers, and the news media, deserve good answers. All such persons should have ready access to the most rigorous and up-to-date evidence on the effectiveness of interventions designed to reduce crime and offending. The best evidence on what works should be quickly accessible to those who need it.
