This chapter deals with the most dominant fears of parents: crime, drugs and anti-social behaviour. It observes that several anti-crime initiatives have evolved in these areas and parents report its impact and shortcomings. It notes that parents explain how much more needs to be done to make families in urban areas feel secure. It explores what interventions made a difference and what the overall impact on crime and families’ security was of the measures that were introduced, particularly, neighbourhood wardens, community policing methods, Anti-social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) and neighbourhood crime prevention.

Keywords:   crime, drugs, anti-social behaviour, anti-crime initiatives, neighbourhood wardens, community policing methods, Anti-social Behaviour Orders, neighbourhood crime prevention
