Title: The Kirkholt Burglary Prevention Project: Phase II.
Description: London: Home Office, 1990. Crime Prevention Unit Paper 23. The second report of one of the most successful projects established by the Research and Development Section of the Home Office Crime Prevention Unit. Pp.vi/51. Paperback. VG. **"The Kirkholt Burglary Prevention Project was a demonstration project of the London Home Office Police Department Crime Prevention Unit. It focused on a neighborhood with 2,280 dwellings that had experienced nearly twice the rate of domestic burglaries as the rest of the country. The project focused on preventing repeat victimization as its primary crime prevention strategy. The program established the Cocoon Neighborhood Watch, where communities worked together to prevent the revictimization of a home and the spread of criminal activity. The community removed coin meters for electricity or gas, a self-identified target among burglars. Project workers took over from local law enforcement responsibility for conducting security surveys, identifying valuables, and establishing cocoons." (NCJRS).
