In crime prevention, law enforcement agencies use problem-solving models to provide relevant solutions to crime-related problems, including theft, burglary, and fraud. Moreover, It is essential to establish a chain of operations by acquiring reliable information sources. Consequently, and diverse progress evaluation systems that focus on theory, contextuality, and implementation. Furthermore, the proposal outlines a problem-solving model application in a crime situation. Also, how it fits a crime prevention context, and why policing agencies need to adapt to responsiveness and flexibility(Background).
A thorough examination of crime reports, maps, arrests, and damage reports thereby conducted. Consequently, crime report surveys were sent to business owners within the business district with an 80% response rate. The surveys revealed that 65% of the respondents reported being victims of these crimes. Further examination revealed that of these victims, 12% were victims of burglary, 25% of fraud, and 28% were theft. These findings underline the need for a crime prevention framework that uses the available data and resources to help reduce the occurrence of crime(Background).
In drafting a grant proposal, the first step is to identify a need within a particular field and research a specific problem. For example, increasing crime rates in the local business community warrant the need for a problem-solving methodology. Consequently, that should ultimately present solutions. An example include the SARA model used in policing as a problem-solving method at community levels. Also It is a Scanning, Analysis, Response, and Assessment model. The scanning stage entails problem recognition and its outcomes, prioritizing challenges, and establishing broad objectives(Background).
A complete and reliable analysis should be conducted in by comprehending any specific wrongdoing impacts on society (Miner & Miner, 2014). The response stage permits law enforcement to work closely with a community and victims of crime to minimize crime and offer leverage to individuals who are mostly the first contact points when a crime happens. Lastly, the assessment stage determines the response plan’s effectiveness and offers quantitative and qualitative data to assess and respond to further community criminal challenges (Background).
