CRJU 3200: Crime Prevention and Security, Spring Semester 2016 Week 8 Displacement of Crime  Impact is made outside of the neighborhood/group being watched o Can be positive or negative  Displacing the crime/shifting the crime  This is a potential problem with any study  Repetto (19070s): o Looked at CPTED o Saw a lack of absolute reduction o Called it a “crime spillover”  Crime will spill over to somewhere else o 5 types of displacement:  1. Territorial (spacial)- shift from one geographic location to another  2. Temporal- doesn’t change crime, only changes when crime is committed  3. Tactical- how you commit the crime (finding another way to do it)  4. Target- need to recognize that not everyone is a victim and not everyone gets involved in prevention  5. Functional- changing crimes (of the offender)  Using a knife instead of a gun  (6.) (Bar and Pease): Perpetrator- you stop that 1 specific person, but the someone else will come in and commits the crime  Drug sales  Assumptions: o Crime is inelastic- a certain level of crime will always occur no matter what o Offenders are mobile- shift across the dimensions (from here to there)  Limits of mobility: wealth, employment, structured activities, age, history, race, physiological temperament/personality  Is displacement a real problem? o Can be good or bad o Benign= good displacement  Crime fuse- crime all in 1 spot is the fuse, when there’s too much, then we will have to fix the crime problem o Malign= bad displacement  Any crime is bad o Diffusion of benefits- opposite of displacement, benefit spill over is a good thing  Offenders are rational  Cognitive Mapping (mental mapping): o Made subconsciously, made through normal daily behavior o 4 aspects of cognitive mapping:  recognition- you know where you’re at, you don’t have to remember how you got there  prediction- you’re able to predict what might happen/should happen  Evaluation- you take what you got and evaluate it  what will happen if you do it?  Action- based on the 3 other aspects, you will decide what actions to take o Assumption- everyone is rational based on cognitive mapping o Rationality is an individual decision Multi-nuclei community- home, entertainment, and work are the nuclei  Connected by paths  Home, entertainment, and work are the nodes  High activity at the nodes  Edges- good place to commit crime  1. Crime generator- area that draws in potential victims  2. Crime attractor- draws in potential victims and offenders o drug market  3. Hunting ground- offenders know that there may be victims in the area with a lack of guardianship In terms of mobility?  Personal crimes are committed close to where the offender lives o 5-6 blocks o Involves no planning o Homicide, rape, aggravated assault  Property crimes are more spread out o 2-3 miles o involves planning  safest place to live: right next to the offender o More planning = more distance o Not conscious planning  Crimes committed by kids are closer to their home o No source of transportation o They have not yet developed a cognitive map Territorial displacement:  Not 100%, not all crime is displaced  Most research is done here  Clear evidence that it exists  Problem: what is the spillover area? Where is the displacement occurring? o They only look for displacement right around the area being studied Temporal displacement:  Clear evidence exists  Lighting doesn’t really reduce crime Tactical displacement:  The study in Seattle reinforced locks and doors o So the offenders broke windows etc. to get in the home Target displacement:  Offenders just pick other homes to burglarize Functional displacement:  Some shift of crime  Clear evidence from Garrett & Bowers Any displacement is a problem for somebody We need to come up with ways for more people to get involved and participate in crime prevention
