Abstract

This presentation will provide an overview of Uganda’s experiences in prisoner re-integration and crime prevention, specifically through the model of community policing.  The next stages in the trans-national crime prevention project will also be discussed, including the cross-cultural sharing of knowledge gained within Uganda and how this might be adopted by other countries.  The second half of the presentation will focus on addressing the gaps between policy makers, program implementers and the affected communities in regards to crime prevention.
