Urban Space Management: Key Elements for an Integrated Approach to Community Safety

Public space management safer is becoming an increasing priority for many local governments and cities given complaints of disorder from citizens, crime trends in urban areas and its potential impact on the population’s feelings of insecurity. The report, commissioned by the Montreal Police Service, presents some main developments and issues, suggests some key elements that could form part of a model for comparative analysis on issues related to the management of public space such as homelessness, drugs, prostitution and public nuisance, and draws on the city of Montreal to assess the applicability of this model. The report also provides some examples of cities which are working to effectively manage public spaces in relation to the above themes, through collaborative approaches to crime prevention.

5th International Report on Crime Prevention and Community Safety: Cities and the New Urban Agenda (2016)

ICPC is pleased to announce the publication of the fifth edition of its International Report. An Executive Summary is also available in English, French and Spanish.

The fifth edition of the International Report on Crime Prevention and Community Safety develops, from the urban perspective, various topics relevant to the current context in cities. As with previous editions of the Report, the first chapter is a constant of ICPC’s International Reports, reviewing major trends in crime and in its prevention. The following two chapters address the relationship between the urban setting and the prevention of crime through two distinct lenses: the first gives a general overview of the issues and major trends facing cities; the second, in contrast, offers a comparative perspective, particularly in relation to national-local relationships in the Latin American context. The final three chapters address three fundamental topics on the prevention of urban crime: public transport, the prevention of drug-related crime, and the prevention of violent radicalization.

Published every two years since 2008, the International Report has become a point of reference providing information and tools to help governments, local authorities, international organizations and other actors implement successful crime prevention policies in their countries, cities and communities.

4th International Report on Crime Prevention and Community Safety (2014)

ICPC is pleased to announce the release of the fourth edition of its International Report in English, French and Spanish

The fourth edition of the International Report is concerned with the overarching theme of the movement of people and how cities, their new arrivals, and existing residents are adapting to this increasingly pressing global phenomenon. As always, the Report begins with a review of trends in crime and violence internationally, and in the practice of crime prevention. Four separate chapters look in more detail at issues which have significant impacts especially at the local level in all parts of the world, and at how cities in particular are responding. They examine the rapidly expanding migration of people - across borders and regions, and within countries - to cities and urban areas; the migration of indigenous peoples to urban areas; the continuing issue of human trafficking and its prevention; and the persistent and troubling problem of intimate partner violence against women. Migration and trafficking are all global problems with strong local impacts, and often closely linked.

The International Report provides information and tools to help governments, local authorities, international organizations and other actors implement successful crime prevention policies in their countries, cities and communities.
