English term or phrase: the Guardians
This article provides a brief overview of the main findings of this research project, focusing on their effect on the targets of bad behaviour, on the guardians of those affected and on the offenders.

El concepto es bastante claro, pero me resulta difícil elegir uno de los numerosos términos posibles, que se adapte bien al contexto. Se trata de las medidas posibles para evitar la delincuencia y el vandalismo en el transporte público. El objeto de los ataques son las personas (personal y pasajeros) y la propiedad; por otra parte están los agresores o infractores y por otra "the guardians", que deben evitar que se produzcan las infracciones o delitos. Los "guardianes" no me acaba de convencer. ¿Podría ser "el personal de seguridad/vigilancia"?

Más frases:

(...) the convergence of a potential offender, a matching target and the absence of a capable guardian.

The three lines of action are: acting on the target, acting on the guardian and acting on the offender.
