Abstract

This chapter explores a neglected dimension of the science of crime and prevention: relationships between security managers and other stakeholders in the process of successfully reducing crime. While it is a commonplace observation in police science that police cannot solve or prevent crime on their own, this same view is rarely applied to security managers. The chapter argues that partnerships, both formal and informal are often essential to generate large reductions in crime that benefit diverse groups. This is demonstrated by reviewing successful crime prevention projects. The chapter also outlines the evolution of partnership polices in a range of countries, and concludes by articulating basic guidelines for optimising effective security collaborations.

Keywords: security, crime prevention, security management
