Abstract: 

The Campbell Collaboration was established in the late 1990s to promulgate scientific reviews of high-quality research on social interventions. In 2000, its Crime and Justice Steering Committee (CJSC) started to instigate and inspect systemic reviews of various criminological interventions. Preventing Crime is the first edited collection of articles to emerge from the CJSC’s initial efforts. The 15 articles in this collection are divided into five parts: In the first chapter, editors Welsh and Farrington describe the various methods of empirical review utilized by contributors to the Campbell Collaborative work. Subsequently, individual sections contain 13 articles that examine effectiveness measures (or what works) for children, offenders, victims, and places. Lastly, the co-editors describe and assess various evidence- based policy options that may contribute to a safer society.
