This article clarifies how one can identify good governance systems and build and apply a science of implementation. The first section briefly discusses the nature of modern crime prevention, and then shifts to a study of prevention science. The next section takes a look at the stages of implementation and analyzes the Crime Reduction Program (CRP). A comparison of the CRP with other crime-prevention implementations and a summary of the lessons taken from implementation case studies are included.
