Innovative program

Program intended to explore new interventions with at-risk populations. Unlike model or promising programs, they are not rooted in the existing evidence base in crime prevention. The innovative program may, for example, come from another field such as health, mental health or education, and the purpose of the project is to adapt and test the approach as a crime prevention measure. The project proposal for the implementation of an innovative program should provide a plausible rationale that links the proposed intervention to the desired outcomes (reductions in offending and positive changes in risk and protective factors). (National Crime Prevention Centre, 2008).
