Making Public Places Safer

This chapter offers some concluding thoughts and identifies future directions to help make public places safer in this age of surveillance. It suggests that there are other forms of surveillance which may be equally or more effective in reducing crime in public places than those discussed in this book, and that these other public-area-surveillance measures may impose fewer social costs on society. The chapter highlights the need to advance evidence-based policy in this area, which involves adopting an evidence-based framework to assess what works best.

Keywords:   public places, surveillance, crime reduction, social costs, society, evidence-based policy
