dc.description.abstract Introduction. The University of Manitoba Police Department (Campus Police), is responsible for protecting life and property on the campus. These responsibilities include crime prevention measures directed towards the University of Manitoba community. This thesis will evaluate the effectiveness of the Campus Police's crime prevention strategies/programs. The goals of the Campus Police's crime prevention strategies/programs are to: (1) decrease crime, (2) decrease fear of crime, and (3) increase communication and improve relations between the police and the community. The evaluation will measure the extent to which these goals have been met. The three crime prevention strategies to be evaluated are, (1) Community-based policing, (2) safewalk/student patrol (safewalk), and (3) code blue/panic buttons (emergency buttons). The objectives o this evaluation will be: (1) To determine the effectiveness of the crime prevention strategies in reducing crime and fear of crime, and in improving police community relations. (2) To determine and identify the critical variables and factors contributing to the strategies' success or failure. (3) To assess the relevance of the findings, both for the programs themselves, and for their contribution to our knowledge on crime prevention. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) en_US
