  • "Its team, made up of artists, designers, criminologists and researchers, aims to prevent crime with well designed products, environments and services."

    What does this mean exactly? Is the idea to prevent crime by creating products that are difficult to steal (or damage, or whatever), or to design products, environments, or services that curb criminal behavior? If to prevent crime, isn't this just an exercise to find design solutions with an interesting "title?" If it's to curb criminal behavior, how can a product, service, or environment, created with the aid of artists, designers, criminologists and researchers, intercept and modify "criminal vectors?" And would such influences work "against" all criminal behavior, in all environments, or only for specific behaviors and locations?
