Where can I find resources on the criminal opportunity theory?

Also see more crime theory information in NIJ's Why Crimes Occur in Hot Spots section. View more resources by conducting a search of our Abstracts Database.

Additionally, information on the effectiveness of select programs based on the criminal opportunity theory can be found on the site.
