The Criminal's Image of the City focuses on the factors influencing the increase in crimes in cities, taking into consideration the behavior patterns of criminals.
The manuscript first details approaches on the spatial and environmental analyses of crimes. The text then takes a look at the conceptual framework needed in understanding the spatial activity of criminals through their environmental perceptions. Considerations include criminals' evaluation of their environments, distinguishing property crime and property criminals, and offender and non-offender samples.
The publication examines how criminals perceive the different areas of cities and how they assess such areas as targets for the commission of crimes. The text also reviews the relationship of public policy and criminal behavior with area images, including approaches to crime prevention, crime and environmental design, predicting locales for crime, relationship between images and behavior, and implementation problems.
The book is a useful reference for readers wanting to dig deeper into the behavior of criminals.
