Repeat victimization has become increasingly recognized as a topic of central importance in both criminological research and crime prevention policy. According to the editors' introduction by Graham Farrell and Ken Pease, "There is much mileage left in repeat victimization as a topic of criminological interest and crime control attention…. It is not inconceivable that a new wave of victim-oriented policing could result."
