Angels from Hell: A Community Approach to Preventing Crime and
This book was written to help prevent crime at the source and rehabilitate
released criminals. The book explores the social problems behind crime,
such as family histories, the consequences of early entry into the penal
system and the complications of re-entering society after incarceration. By
dealing with the issues behind criminal behaviour, Elsey hopes to stop the
cycle of crime and give families and the community the knowledge and tools
to create a safer environment for everyone.
