CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 25, 2005 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – A new book titled The Prevention Agency: A Public Safety Model for High Crime Communities, written by Critical Intervention Services President K.C. Poulin and Dr. Charles Nemeth of California University of Pennsylvania, has been released.

This book proposes creating innovative approaches to crime control, reducing the level of victimization, and in turn, elevating the quality of life within high crime communities. Using a partnership between private, public, and non-profit sectors and resources, the authors present a new organization whose aim is to coordinate resources and public safety initiatives to transform high crime communities.

The Prevention Agency offers a new approach to policing distressed communities using private-sector justice professionals as compared to the public law enforcement superstructure. The text sets forth this innovative organization as an alternative for communities and their beleaguered residents. The premise is a unique blend of private, entrepreneurial, community and public resources, and delivers not only change in how things are done, but also offers results which communities under siege can only presently dream of.

Also written by K.C. Poulin and Chuck Nemeth is Public
Safety and Private Security: A Community-Based Approach.
This book was published by Prentice Hall outlining the
everyday activities and efforts of Critical Intervention Services and its methodologies for reclaiming and rehabilitating high crime communities. Both books can be purchased through or the S2 Safety & Intelligence Institute at
