Local differences in the crime drop: Are there winners and losers?

Research briefing 3 reports on a preliminary investigation of local differences during the drop in crime in the Greater Glasgow area between 2004 and 2010/11. In recent years, a crime drop has been identified in the United States and across much of Europe. A similar trajectory of falling crime has also been identified in Scotland. Typically, attention has focused on exploring the crime drop at the level of the nation state. There has been a more limited endeavour to explore the crime drop at neighbourhood level. Our research begins to redress this shortfall by examining the crime trajectories of neighbourhoods in the Greater Glasgow area.
