Schools have a great potential as a locus for crime prevention. They provide regular access to learners throughout the developmental years, perhaps the only consistent access to large numbers of crime-prone healthy young children in early school years. Research has also identified several school-related precursors to delinquency including the characteristics of school and classroom environments as well as individual-level school-related experiences and attitudes, peer group experiences, and personal values, attitudes and beliefs.
