Abstract: 

This research explores the micro-spatial concentrations of residential burglary within the Canadian municipality of Surrey, BC. The spatial distribution of residential burglary events are explored in relation to the street network, as well as local crime attractors and generators. Findings emphasize that the concentrated nature of residential burglary may be influenced by physical structure of the urban environment.
