Abstract

Malmö police department has undertaken an innovative approach to its crime prevention work. An implemented problem-oriented policing project at identified micro crime places showed a significant decrease in crime by 28 % in the target area and a 23 % decrease in the project area’s buffer-zones. This result comes from a targeted measurement of displacement and possible diffusion of benefits.
