In this same article studies indicate auto thefts are linked to community structure, instability and surrounding crime (Jeffrey Walsh, 2007). The author theorizes the reason for the lack of research is the crime itself creates little effect on most victims. That said, stability of a neighborhood has an affect on auto theft incidents. The more unstable the neighborhood, the more likely crime will occur which includes auto theft. The studies also found new anti-theft improvement on vehicles did not decrease the number of auto thefts. It did, however, slightly affect the targeted vehicles, older models vs. newer models. Nationwide, recovery statistics are not recorded consistently, this includes the Overland Park Police Department. This data would be helpful in determining the types of thieves, joyriders vs. professional car theft rings.

    thus, allowing the offenders to view this as a rational and reliable method in order to deal with similar pressures in the future (Jacobs and Wright, 1999).

According to Topalli and Wright (2004), “Situational inducements could be intensely compelling, pressing offenders to engage in carjacking even under unfavorable circumstances, where the risk of arrest, injury, or death was high or the potential reward was low” (As…

  • Personal Narrative: Moving Into The Old Farm House

    It had been a long hot summer and Laura was ready for the change in weather and the change in scenery. Fall was really her favorite time of the year anyway.

She didn’t like the idea that there was only one bathroom, which was downstairs, but since it would only be her living…
