“...It is now accepted by most national and local spheres of government that urban safety needs to be built from homes
and street level up, and incorporated into local and national planning. It cannot be left to the police alone. Urban governance processes, and urban policies that target exclusion, social inequalities, as well as appropriate planning measures, are key to success. Indeed community security requires a holistic and coordinated approach.”
