Social caretakers and preventing crime on public housing estates

Social caretakers and preventing crime on public housing estates

Summary

The Dutch government stimulated the employment of social caretakers on public housing estates. Besides other measures, they should contribute to the prevention of crime and the improvement of the living conditions on these estates. The WODC has studied the effects of the introduction of social caretakers on vandalism, crime and the rental position of the estate.
