This article begins with a recogniation that much crime is committed by repeat offenders, many of whom associate with one another and "work" together, often in the same neighborhoods and proposes a new approach to controlling their misbehavior. This approach does not necessarily rely on incapacitating or otherwise directly controlling individuals, rehabilitating individuals, eliminating offending groups, or the general supression of groups' offending behvior. Rather, it uses the characteristics of chronic offenders, criminal networks, high-crime areas, and other criminal milieus as a route to ward the control of selected dimensons of criminal behavior.
