The Comparative Costs and Benefits of Programs to Reduce Crime: A Review of National Research Findings With Implications for Washington State

Open Publication PDF

Steve Aos, Polly Phipps, Robert Barnoski, Roxanne Lieb - May 1999

This report describes the “bottom-line” economics of various programs that try to reduce criminal behavior. We identify the types of programs that can, as well as those that apparently cannot, reduce criminal offending in a cost-beneficial way. Among other uses, this information can assist decision-makers in allocating scarce public resources.
