Project description

This research project tests one of the central tenets of crime pattern theory and scrutinizes the influence of crime generators and attractors on the spatial clustering of crime in an urban environment. The project focuses both on the spatial aspects of those urban locations where crime clusters and how different offender types interact with these locations.
