Local Safety Audits

A Compendium of International Practice

A clear picture of crime and victimization in a given city is the foundation for targeted action to reduce crime and increase individual and collective security. The safety audit is a tool to acquire the necessary knowledge and to build commitment from the range of partners whose collaboration is necessary to achieve results.   The purpose of this Guidance is to explain the tool and to encourage and support its use. It has been written for everyone who has a significant role to play in designing and funding crime prevention programs and in directing, developing or delivering crime prevention activity.
