Decrease In Casinos

Satisfactory Essays

An analysis of the literature shows agreement that various types of crimes decrease in communities with casinos. Albanese (1985) argues that violent crime does not increase, but street crime does increase around the casinos. He says that certain crimes like burglary, robbery, and motor vehicle theft increase. Johnson and Ratcliffe prove that the casinos have no significant effect on violent street crime, felonies, vehicle crime, or drug crime at the neighborhood level in a community (Kirchner, 2014). Tapley (2009) writes that due to the increase in the law enforcement in communities’ crime does not go up. Grinols and Mustard (2008) argue that the casinos create crime not only in the community it is built in but also in neighboring communities.
