Once ideas have been generated, the preferred options need to be appraised. This
process is critical. To achieve their full potential, the measures introduced need
to be based on a clear understanding of:
WHY they are expected to work (what mechanisms they will use); and
WHAT needs to happen for them to succeed.
Rigorous option appraisal will help identify the most effective - and cost effective
- options. It will also highlight ingredients that are crucial to success when it
comes to local implementation. For a systematic map of causes of anti-social/criminal
events and types of intervention mechanisms see the Conjunction of Criminal Opportunity
