Abstract: 

Crime Attractor and Crime Generator research is advancing rapidly. Research explores the context of criminal events by looking at the awareness space of offenders and victims and location of targets and explores how mobility in an urban environment and the mosaic of the urban landscape influences safety, perceived safety, human agency and decision making. Research finds a heavy concentration of crime at major attractor nodes, primary pathways to these nodes and along sharp edges separating neighborhood.
