School-Based Drug Abuse Prevention: Promising and Successful Programs
Crime prevention is the attempt to reduce and deter crime and criminals. It is applied specifically to efforts made by governments to reduce crime, enforce the law, and maintain criminal justice. Criminologists , commissions, and research bodies such as the World Health Organization , United Nations , the United States National Research Council , the UK Audit Commission have analyzed their and others' research on what lowers rates of interpersonal crime. They agree that governments must go beyond law enforcement and criminal justice to tackle the risk factors that cause crime because it is more cost effective and leads to greater social benefits than the standard ways of responding to crime. Multiple opinion polls also confirm public support for investment in prevention.
Housing is considered essential human need as it is ranked next to food for obvious reasons like provision of living accommodation, investment opportunities, social and recreation services among others. However, its relevance to humanity is gradually being eroded as a result of the threat from residential neighbourhood crime in the form of burglary and theft, vandalism, incivilities and street crime, robbery and even violent crime. In Nigeria, it was found that the use of penal system use of police, prison and courts for crime control is prevalent which researchers have described to be grossly inadequate. Hence, the intention of this research is to empirically analyse the desirability of the proposed socio-environmental design factors SEDeF model as a more effective technique to curb residential neighbourhood crime in Nigeria. Purposive and systematic sampling techniques were adopted while logistic regression was used to determine the impact of the various components of each factor. The results showed a significant probability of 0. The policy implication of this result is that if government can intensify effort in the use of social development factors SDF and environmental design factors EDF , the soaring trend of residential neighbourhood crime would be curtailed.

Prevention programs often are designed to enhance "protective factors" and to reduce "risk factors. Risk factors are those that make drug use more likely. Research asserts that for individuals who begin using illicit substances at an early age, several risk factors may increase the likelihood of continued and problematic use in later ages, when substance-related crime becomes much more likely. Research has also demonstrated that many of the same risk and protective factors apply to other behaviors such as youth violence, delinquency, school dropout, risky sexual behaviors, and teen pregnancy. Responding to these risky behaviors before they become problematic can be difficult.
