This chapter discusses the main characteristics of the crime proofing of legislation as a situational prevention measure to reduce the opportunities for crime inadvertently created by legislation.

Abstract

This chapter discusses the main characteristics of the crime proofing of legislation as a situational prevention measure to reduce the opportunities for crime inadvertently created by legislation. After outlining the precedents and framing it inside the European Union approach for crime prevention developed in the middle of 2000, the different steps of this approach are outlined together with and an example of its implementation. Even though it has been until now neglected and not completely developed, the author believes that proofing legislation against crime could be a successful challenge to reduce opportunities for crime deriving from the increasing number of laws and their complexity at different levels.
