Prevention of Organised Crime

A Situational Approach

By H.G. Van De Bunt, C.R.A. Van Der Schoot

Case studies of organized crime show that illegitimate and legitimate environments intermingle. Although these interfaces are a threat to the legitimate world they also offer opportunities for prevention. The message is simple: if criminal organizations are able to easily acquire or access resources, then the number of these resources should be reduced or made more difficult to acquire or access. Therefore this study identifies opportunities that facilitate organized crime and presents measures to prevent them.
