The U.S. Department of Justice regularly commission problem-specific guides intended for police and crime prevention practitioners. These guides compile and summarize knowledge about specific crime problems, and catalogue responses which have successfully reduced the harm caused by those problems. This peer-reviewed guide addresses the problem of bicycle theft. First, it describes the problem of bicycle theft and reviews the factors that contribute to it. Second, it identifies a series of questions to help improve the analysis of bicycle theft and the evaluation of bicycle theft interventions. Finally, it reviews responses to bicycle theft and describes the findings of evaluative research and operational policing.
