Abstract

Crime prevention cannot be achieved through police control alone, nor can it be achieved through interventions in the physical or social urban environment alone: it needs a combination of several approaches. The concept of defensible space proved to be too limited in scope for direct application. A proper combination of strategies integrates inter alia urban design, community organization and housing management. Urban planning, in a wider sense, can be conducive to the reduction of crime and fear of crime. Examples of urban planning concepts and elements illustrate the variety of (possibly) preventive measures. The measures should be embedded in an integrative criminal policy on the municipal level.
