This book positions script analysis as a useful and pragmatic tool, which can guide the selection and implementation of preventive measures in business environments.

These are illustrated by a series of case studies into various crime types. Moving beyond the use of script analysis with the intent to disrupt the crime-commission process, the author further explores the wider benefits of the approach to both academics and practitioners. He identifies what is needed most if we want to embrace the full potential of script analysis for preventive purposes. “/div>
