Program Participation and World View
As discussed earlier, participation in burglary prevention, nationwide, has been less than may be desirable. Surely some programs are exceptions to this generalization. But probably many more have given residents what they consider valid reasons for participating in burglary prevention, yet residents refuse to do so. Such a program may proceed to blame them for failing to realize the benefit they are declining and make little or no additional effort to encourage participation. Other programs may consider such refusals only the initial response and try to devise new, more effective messages, or arguments to persuade residents to take measures to protect their homes and property. This chapter is addressed to readers interested in the latter approach.
