Developmental crime prevention is an early intervention approach to crime prevention which focuses on the way a crime occurs or a victimization happens. In general developmental crime prevention approach to crime prevention tries to prevent the development of motivated offenders. Crime prevention includes strategies such as Community Crime Prevention, Effective Guardianship and Situational Crime Prevention. Developmental crime prevention experiments with children have targeted the development of antisocial behavior, and confirm the hypothesis that early childhood factors are important precursors of delinquent behavior, and that a cumulative effect model best fits the data. The community may focus on helping teachers develop self-control in young people. Developmental crime prevention and early intervention crime prevention are moved by research evidence.
Developmental Crime Prevention - Richard E. Tremblay, Wendy M. Craig - Crime and Justice, Vol. 19, Building a Safer Society: Strategic Approaches to Crime Prevention. Abstract: Experiments have aimed to prevent criminal behavior or one of three important delinquency risk factors: socially disruptive behavior, cognitive deficits, and poor parenting. The most significant challenge for developmental crime prevention and early intervention crime prevention remains moving the research evidence into effective everyday programs.

Developmental and Early Intervention Approaches to Crime Prevention - Dr Linda Gilmore. Dr Gilmore is a member of the Developmental Crime Prevention Consortium which produced the 1999 report Pathways to prevention: Developmental and early intervention approaches to crime in Australia, and is currently co-authoring a book about developmental approaches to crime and crime policy for Cambridge University Press.
Developmental crime prevention and early intervention approaches to crime prevention highlights new directions in developmental prevention. Community crime prevention is a general category of prevention strategies which focus on the community itself. This general category of community crime prevention includes strategies such as developmental crime prevention, effective guardianship or situational crime prevention.
Developmental and early intervention approaches to crime prevention
Abstract: Developmental crime prevention and early intervention strategies for the reduction and prevention of crime can operate across all three levels of prevention: primary, secondary and tertiary. Developmental crime prevention is intervention early in developmental pathways that may lead to the emergence and recurrence of criminal behaviors and other social problems.
Developmental crime prevention emphasises investment in strategies and programs for creating "child friendly" institutions and communities. In Australia, developmental crime prevention programs typically cover areas such as parenting and early childhood support. The growing interest in developmental crime prevention and early intervention for the prevention and reduction of crime is mainly driven by frustration at the apparent failure of conventional strategies to prevent the long-term growth and recurrence of crime in the community.

National Crime Prevention is an initiative of the Commonwealth Government. National Crime Prevention finds and promotes ways of preventing violence, crime and fear of crime in Australian communities.
This partnership recognises the primary role of the States and Territories for law enforcement, developmental crime prevention and community safety. The research for Stage 1 has been completed and included a literature review, an assessment of existing services in Australia related to developmental crime prevention, and the development of recommendations for the second stage of the project.
The Developmental Crime Prevention Consortium was selected to undertake Stage 1. Headed by Professor Ross Homel, the Consortium completed the research between September 1997 and February 1998.
