Understanding the Issues and Community Factors
The first step in a crime prevention approach is the development of a comprehensive picture of the local situation. The portrait of the local situation provides a clear overview of the people a program needs to reach. It includes information on existing and emerging risky behaviours or problem situations and the context in which they occur. This assessment looks at what influences people to make the decision to adopt risky behaviours. The portrait also includes an inventory of resources and programs in the community.

In a 2012 Call for Letters of Intent, the NCPC presented a Guide to Select Model and Promising Crime Prevention Programs. It identifies a four step model to help people in communities select a crime prevention program. Although not exhaustive, it presents some key considerations and questions designed to help people make the most informed decisions possible when selecting a program for implementation in their community.
Please note: The Call for Letters of Intent is now closed. To receive information about new funding opportunities through the NCPC, register for the NCPC mailing list to receive information from the Centre.
