 CPTED to reduce Repeat Victimisation

A large proportion of crime is repeat victimisation of the same victims or locations.


For example: 


*   Domestic violence - some individuals suffer multiple assaults

*   Burglary - some homes bear the brunt of crime

*   Assault - some males have high incidence of attacks

*   Sexual assault - some locations have high incidences

*   Vehicle theft - some kinds of vehicles are more commonly broken into or stolen than others

*   Fraud - some individuals (often elderly) suffer repeat victimisaiton and identity theft


Reducing repeat victimization is a cost-effective way to reduce crime.


CPTED methods can help reduce repeat victimisation.


See this new article on LinkedIn on how to use CPTED to reduce repeat victimization.


The article introduces a new CPTED method – Routine activity Analysis and Management.
