New papers on crime in a Czech city

Two new articles by Jana Jíchová and Martin Šimon have been published. Both papers focus on the concentration of crime in places and use geolocated data for crime from a regional Czech city. The first article was published in the Czech Sociological Review and focuses on the concentration of crime in street segments. At the same time, it presents a general model of the distribution of crime in the city, based on different levels and concentrations of crime in different types of residential environments. The second article was published online in the European Journal of Criminology. This article combines crime harm indexes and the law of crime concentration in place. The research shows the differences between the concentration of crime and its severity between western cities and in the Czech city, where they are less spatially clustered. These findings are essential for planning locally oriented policies. Both papers are available on the links above.
