This Field Guide is organized into five sections:
Section 1 provides background information on crime and violence prevention, including an overview of the key crime, violence, and citizen-security issues in the region as well as why citizen security is of concern to USAID.
Section 2 describes the conceptual framework for crime and violence prevention and citizen security, including key concepts, definitions, and explanations of various conceptual approaches.
Section 3 presents an analysis of predominant risk and protective factors, particularly those related to crime and violence in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Section 4 provides an overview of the conceptual framework for mapping crime and violence prevention interventions.
Section 5 introduces key aspects of each of the four phases of violence prevention and intervention: design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.
The annexes at the back of this guide provide a longer discussion regarding the state of crime and violence in several Latin American and Caribbean countries. The annexes include a matrix of crime and violence prevention interventions, additional information on sources of data on crime and violence, examples of municipal crime and violence prevention programs, and a list of standardized indicators for citizen security and crime prevention. The annexes also include a bibliography and a list of useful resources for crime and violence prevention.
