Watching the Bottom Line: Cost-Effective Interventions for Reducing Crime in Washington

Open Publication PDF

Steve Aos, Robert Barnoski, Roxanne Lieb - January 1998

This report highlights the findings of the Institute’s economic analysis of programs that try to reduce criminal behavior. The Institute found that there are some interventions, if well implemented, that can lower crime rates and lower total costs. Some economically attractive programs are designed to reduce the odds that young children will ever begin committing crimes, and some are designed for juvenile offenders already in the criminal justice system.
