Project Description

This project aims to identify the temporal, spatial and contextual elements that influence citizen initiated crime prevention action.Taking an interdisciplinary approach and applying a cutting edge methodology, it will be the first study to consider the capacity and availability of capable guardians and their intersection with the environmental contexts they frequent. The project will generate new knowledge on the resources needed to ensure ordinary citizens can effectively respond to problems when and where they occur. Given the enormous costs of crime to society, the expected outcomes of this project will lead to the development of economically efficient and practical community crime prevention programs that benefit the wider community.
