CRJU 3200: Crime Prevention and Security- Spring Semester 2016 Week 1 Ways to measure crime:  Uniform Crime Report (UCR) o Police give the FBI their crime data and reports of crime o Completely voluntary, police do not have to give any data  High crime reports may make it look like the police are not doing a good job o Includes Part I and Part II offenses  Part I offenses (in order, violent crimes): murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, (property crimes): burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson  Police collect information on Part I offenses  You have a higher chance of being a victim of property crimes  Part II offenses: any crime that is not listed in the Part I offenses  Police collect information on Part II offenses o Crime rate (violent or property): a number of crimes that is for every 100,000 people  i.e. in 2013, the crime rate was 3,099  means there was 3,099 crimes for every 100,000 people  crime rate trend is decreasing  National Crime Victim Survey (NCVS) o Random household surveys that ask if you have been victimized in the last year o The idea of a victim survey came about in the 1970s and has been a yearly survey ever since o Started because of the dark shadow figures- unreported crimes by people to the police o NCVS has higher numbers than the UCR because dark shadow figures become reported o Crime rate trend is decreasing Cost of crime:  Trend of cost of crime has steadily gone up o Criminals are getting smarter and stealing more expensive things o Medical costs are rising as well  Does not count indirect losses o Seeing a psychiatrist to help cope o Paying the police o Cost of the court o Cost of running prisons/correctional facilities Impact of crime on people  Changes your behavior  Changes peoples’ perceptions  Psychological damage o Rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure o Adrenaline rush o Become very focused on the one thing happening and cannot calm down o Change in view of everything around  Change in attitude o Avoiding a place/person/activity because you’re afraid of what might happen (not going to school because of mass school shootings) o Fear of crime  The elderly and women are the most fearful groups, yet they are the least victimized  Most victimized and most criminal are young men ages 15- 25 because they are victimizing each other  You need to be cautious, but not scared  People’s fear is increasing while actual crime is decreasing  Media
