SITUATIONAL CRIME PREVENTION IN PUBLIC HOUSING : LETTER FROM AMERICA

par Véronique LEVAN,

Véronique LEVAN is doing her comparative doctoral research in American Studies (University of Paris IV-Sorbonne/CESDIP) on the effects of the implementation of situational crime prevention in public housing in France, Great Britain and the United States. She reports here on the situation in New York City.

In France, the repeated announcement that a bill will soon be passed on crime prevention policy, partly focu-sing on dissuasion, along with the cyclic, current event-linked politicized debates on "insecurity", show that a reflexive detour by thinking about experiences elsewhere is quite relevant. The present paper attempts to provide some elements of response, based on the analysis of the implementation of situational crime prevention in a public hou-sing project in New York City. We first discuss the theoretical foundations of situational prevention, followed by a presentation of the programs implemented in the USA and in the neighborhood studied and last, the findings of the local investigation.
