evaluate a local public service initiative designed to address crime and its impact on the community D2 brings together M2 and M3. For this criterion learners have to evaluate the effectiveness of a local initiative to tackle current crime trends. Ideally this should be based on the learners study of their own local community and the current initiatives for that community. At this level the learner would be expected to consider the positive and negative effects of any such initiative and to draw their own conclusions as to the success of the initiative do the benefits derived from the initiative justify the resources expended on it? =64&Itemid=6,%20UK
