Crime Control Through Private Enterprise
By Bruce L. Benson
This article appeared in the Winter 1998 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Private firms are increasingly sought after to provide the four Ps of crime control: prevention, pursuit, prosecution, and punishment. Because the benefits of entrepreneurship in crime control are considerable—swifter justice and greater security at lower cost—policymakers may be forced to seriously consider lowering the legal obstacles that block full development of this trend.
