6. Understanding the crime drop indicated, assessing crime trends is fraught with difficulties, one very careful review of evidence nevertheless concluded that ‘it is reasonable to refer to a general crime drop in Europe’. So, the trend being discussed is not one that appears to have been confined to particular cities or particular countries. Nor is it a short-term blip, but has been sustained over a significant period of time, even during periods of great economic turbulence. So how might it be explained?

9. Where next for criminology? In this Very Short Introduction to criminology, I have focused on a number of fundamental issues. What is crime? How much crime is there and how do we know? How might we explain long-term trends in crime? Who commits crime; and when and why do they stop? And how do we control or prevent crime? By this stage, I hope we might agree that these are important and interesting questions, and that criminology already has a few thoughtful answers to some of them. But what does the future hold?

8. How do we prevent crime? , it is almost certainly the case that processes of socialization underpinned and reinforced by informal social control play a vital role in controlling crime. In terms of formal interventions, as indicated, there is now considerable evidence to suggest that various crime prevention techniques have contributed very substantially to recent apparent reductions in crime. Indeed, research in the broad field of crime prevention has been one of criminology’s greatest contributions in recent times.
