The globalization of crime and the emergence of new forms of it have increased the spread of violence and threats towards individuals and societies. It has become imperative to follow modern trends in crime prevention, as they are proactive, participatory, and stimulate the role of the individual and the community. For this reason, the paper aims to show the latest approaches and practices in the prevention of delinquency and crime. Based on an analytical methodology, this paper provides an examination of the new trends in crime, to analyze modern initiatives, practices, and strategies in its prevention. The Kyoto Conference (March 2021) is a theoretical entry point for monitoring global trends in crime prevention. The results of the analysis show that prevention through social development, situational prevention, and community-based prevention remain the most used and effective approaches. The results also show that prevention based on the role of the city and prevention based on regional and international coordination are the latest trends in modern practices. This paper will also discuss the most important tools in following up on prevention programs, models for comprehensive strategies, and a brief analysis of the role of forensic sciences in developing modern prevention trends. The paper recommends to make social development programs a top priority, by involving the psychological factors and all the components of the local community and civil society, to create an Arab observatory for crime, violence and delinquency, founding a platform for best practices, and creating an Arab Center for Youth Empowerment.
