A Case Study of Crime Prevention/Community Safety Partnerships in Victoria

Cherney, Adrian (2004) A Case Study of Crime Prevention/Community Safety Partnerships in Victoria. Current Issues in Criminal Justice, 15(3), pp. 237-252.

Abstract

This article discusses and analyses the operation of community safety partnerships initiated under the Victorian program Safer Cities and Shires. It looks at how they operated and aims to identify factors that impacted on the dynamics of local partnerships. The author argues that broader State government policy and action (or inaction) undermined the effective operation of local partnerships formed under Safer Cities and Shires. The lessons from this case study highlight that without commitment to the devolution of resources, authority and decision making powers, partnerships will struggle to effectively deliver State-wide policies on crime prevention and community safety.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
