The moral public policy creates a pathway to prevent crime prevention. The country like India where public policy and religion plays a vital role in an individual’s life, this paper is going to discuss about how the public policy plays a role in crime prevention as well as the various approach and ways to prevent crime prevention in the society where public policy and individual identities are necessary in-person life.
