History of the ISCPP
In the late 1960s, the University of Louisville (Louisville, Kentucky, USA), under the direction of Dean Klotter, investigated crime prevention programs that were being initiated in England. For the first time, Law Enforcement started looking at how to be proactive in fighting crime. The University felt that Law Enforcement was about the only profession that was totally reactive. Other professions, such as firemen, with fire prevention, doctors, with disease prevention and lawyers with legal advice, were all heavily involved in being proactive.
