The most important conclusion the study showed was that collaboration between organizations and authorities is the key to a successful work with crime prevention. It is also essential to be aware of all the risk factors that a person can either be surrounded by or have in its own personality. Some risk factors can be; a non existing education, an unstable family or/and older siblings that are criminal. Safety factors are also something to notice and make sure that the youth has in its life. The more safety factors a youth have the better. Some example of safety factors can be; a safe and stable family, a good education and a healthy and active leisure. Crime prevention actions work best when it is implemented early in a young person’s life. (Less)
