Annotation: THIS REPORT ANALYZES AVAILABLE CRIME STATISTICS IN THE RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, SCHOOL, AND TRANSPORTATION ENVIRONMENTS TO GUIDE THE SELECTION OF DEMONSTRATION SITES FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF CPTED PROGRAM STRATEGIES.
Abstract: DATA SUPPORTING THE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS IS DRAWN FROM FIVE SOURCES: THE UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS, NATIONAL CRIME PANEL SURVEYS, VARIOUS NATIONALLY ORIENTED CRIME SURVEYS, ANALYTIC STUDIES, AND DEMOGRAPHIC SURVEYS. TRENDS ARE TRACED AND PATTERNS RELATING CRIME TO SPECIFIC SUBENVIRONMENTS IDENTIFIED. SUBENVIRONMENTS IDENTIFIED AS HAVING SIGNIFICANT CRIME PROBLEMS ARE THEN EXAMINED USING CRIME, ENVIRONMENT, AND CPTED PROGRAM-RELATED CRITERIA TO IDENTIFY THOSE WHERE THE COMBINATION OF CRIME LEVEL AND ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERISTICS WERE SUCH THAT THEY WARRANTED CONSIDERATION AS DEMONSTRATION SITES UNDER THE CPTED PROGRAM. SEE ALSO NCJ-36572-75. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
