Project – Construct a Crime Prevention Program: Part 1

For this project, you will assume the role of a social science researcher in charge of developing a new crime prevention program targeted toward juveniles in the K–12 school system. Review current crime prevention programs that target juveniles and adults. There are several crime prevention programs that are designed for adults and which are also in K–12 schools nationwide with a standardized curriculum (i.e., Neighborhood Watch, D.A.R.E. and G.R.E.A.T.) with many more programs created at the local level (i.e., Citizens Academy, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and YMCA after-school programs are unique to the community).

Based on these comparisons, explain which elements you would place in your program and how your program will be delivered to the students.
