Abstract : A crisis relocation, as well as other types of civilian evacuation, presents an environment for increased criminal activity. Alternative methods of preventing crime can reduce the opportunity for criminal activity, increase the likelihood of apprehending a criminal, and increase or conserve law enforcement resources. Similarly, alternatives to the usual disposition of prisoners in risk areas can reduce demand on facilities and law enforcement personnel workload. This Guide, prepared for use by law enforcement and crisis relocation planning personnel, describes crime prevention techniques and prisoner disposition alternatives potentially useful in crisis relocation periods.
