However, offenses including violent crimes, murder, robbery, aggravated assault, motor vehicle theft, and arson fluctuated in number during the respective time period. Notably, the number of reported rapes has steadily climbed over the analyzed five-year period in Citrus County, also based on data from the Uniform Crime Reporting database (source). Interestingly, crime in Citrus County has relatively decreased with an increased population, according to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (source). With the majority of citizens in Citrus County over fifty years of age, crime rates in select developments and communities within the county are remarkably low, according to the Citrus Crime Watch Association (source). However, the United States Census Bureau reports that over twenty percent of Citrus County residents live in poverty, where select residential and public areas are more prone to criminal activity within the county (source). Nonetheless, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office continues to patrol and police all areas of Citrus County, gradually reducing crime

Assessment of tracking juvenile arrests and crime is important to know so the government knows what laws are working and what laws need to be revised. Murder arrests in 2001 were near their lowest levels since at least 1980 for both white and black youth. Between 1993 and 2001, murder rates for white juveniles declined 62% while the rate for black juveniles declined 79%. In 2001 the robbery arrests rates for both black youth and white youth were at a 20 year low. The 2001 aggravated assault arrest rate for black juveniles was much closer to its 1980 level than was the rate for white juveniles. The juvenile arrest rates for weapons violations and murder more than doubled between 1987 and the peak year 1993. After 1993 both rates fell substantially the juvenile arrest rate for weapons law violations was cut in half falling 49% and returning to the 1987 level. Between 1980 and 1993 the juvenile arrest rate for drug abuse violations remained within a limited range. Between 1993 and 1997 however the rate grew 77% by
Violent crimes in their 334 developments have risen over 31% since 2009 and the city needs over $15 billion to properly fix the buildings over the next 5 years (Smith, 2014). Castle Hill, Patterson, Wagner, Brownsville, Van Dyke I, Butler, Ingersoll, Queensbridge South, Polo Grounds Towers, and Red Hook West are the worst of the worst and will require almost $2 billion to fix (Smith, 2014). The conditions were so bad that 65% felt that intruders could gain entry because bad locks and 45% did not feel safe in their stairwells (Smith, 2014). The money and decisions for how to fix these problems and reduce crime have to come from
According to the FBI, Home Break-In (Burglary) is the most common threat to our home. Over 2.5 million home invasions happen every year in the United States of America. When caught, the burglar can be trailed for two different types of cases. One of these cases is a civil case and the other one is a criminal case. They are both brought up by different people and have different outcomes. In this question we given a situation where a Burglar Bob has been caught breaking into another Vince Victim’s home. We will take a look at who will be responsible for bring up the civil and criminal cases. As well as what the outcome could be for both cases.
The city Richmond, located in Virginia, is a huge city with small areas with high crime rates. Above all, Richmond is a beautiful city and not labeled as broken. Richmond offers a large amount of diversity, variety of foods, high amounts of education, many opportunities and more. The younger generation does many criminal acts because they lack knowledge and there is no hope for youth in some communities. Furthermore, Richmond is determined to fix a window before the whole community is full of broken window. Richmond offers counseling, church groups, mentors, school tutoring, and many more programs to help our community continue to be great. The Richmond population is about two hundred fourteen thousand people. A study of the violent crime comparisons that had a thousand residents. The study stated that a Richmond resident had a one in one hundred eighty six chances of becoming a criminal. The Richmond police strive to be a part of the community.

One thing the chief in Gresham needs to keep in mind is that more police does not necessarily mean a reduction of crime. In fact studies have shown that simply increasing the quantity of police in a given area has little to no effect on the areas crime rates. (---) The disparity between the residential burglary rates in Gresham and the rest of Oregon probably reflects the fact that despite having a large number of police the city's policing tactics are not directed toward the source of the issue. this is exemplified primarily by the fact that each of the surrounding cities which have seen a reduction in residential burglaries have pre uabl sful mmunity outreach programs to promote the reduction in general residential crime. For instance one
The primary way to link most property crime patterns is together, proximity, and time. The key characteristics of theft of a vehicle pattern are primarily based on the type of place where the cars are located in a business verse a residence, proximity of thefts, and time of occurrence. Some the key characteristic for identifying for vehicle theft are proximity like hotspot, time and the type of place like a residence verse a commercial plaza. Identifying residential burglary patterns are the type of residence and proximity. If burglaries occur at night time and this happens in a different neighborhood, or to business within the area, this is not seen as a failure of the response since the response to the pattern would not be addressing burglaries
Homelessness is an epidemic that affects millions of people all over the world. These people have no place to live, are rarely able to bathe, and they have little to no food to eat. There are many reasons why people become homeless, but they can be broken down into three categories; Structural factors, systematic failures, and individual and relational factors.
Male abuse is the hidden side of domestic violence. Representative sample surveys of the population show that abuse is a fifty-fifty proposition when it comes to intimate partner violence. The only exception to these figures is shown in the major national survey produced by the National Violence Against Women survey which found that thirty-six percent of the victims are male (Kimmell, 2001). The issue is not that men don’t tell, no one actually asks. Women on the other hand have the public knowledge that domestic violence occurs. They have shelters and crisis lines to seek help, and there is also someone who cares enough to ask. This equivalent does not exist for men because quite possibly of discrimination.
All over America, there are people wandering the streets without a home. These individuals are seen as a crowd, a separate collective existence. They are called the homeless, as if that defines who they are, but we too often neglect to add the unspoken word in that title: people. It seems today that the more fortunate citizens of America who have a roof over their heads have forgotten their innate responsibility to watch over those in this world whom are incapable of caring for themselves. Tragically, “thirty to fifty percent of the homeless have severe mental illnesses” (Torrey 1). These individuals live life in such a way that few people in this world could possibly even begin to compare their hardships. The fact that they survive
Throughout the entire history of human civilization, the prevalence of homelessness has been a challenge to every nation. It might be depressing to learn that no countries today have eradicated homelessness, but the human race is never stopped from trying harder than before to tackle this prolonged issue. As the two leading economic powers, America and China have to face the challenge of reducing homelessness. According to a report written by Nation Coalition for the Homeless, “a study done by the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty which states that approximately 3.5 million people, 1.35 million of them children, are likely to experience homelessness in a given year” in America alone (National Coalition for the Homeless, July
Gender asymmetry and gender symmetry are two different topics that are in a heated debate, when it comes to domestic violence. It’s not only talked about in the sociology department but in the criminal justice system, government officials, and feminist talks. Over the years we see a growing effect on domestic violence towards women. According to goodhousekeeping.com 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of physical violence by an intimate partner; and every 9 seconds in the U.S., a woman is assaulted or beaten. (Domestic Violence Statistics: The Horrific Reality) Researcher want to know how it started, how to prevent it and where it is coming from. There are numerous studies that show that men are the main focus in domestic violence. You hear it from the media, statistics, and victims themselves about the violence that is perpetuated by men against women. Some researchers think that the rates of domestic violence are equivalent to both genders, which is called gender symmetry. Since the 1990s, people have supported the name violence against women until the shifted of gender neutral terms. Some researcher and activist even think that women are the main causes of domestic violence and researchers show very little to no study of that. But that’s not the point, activist and researcher who agree with gender symmetry say that men are victimized by domestic violence are in equal numbers. Most antifeminist believe that women are violent as men. Women and men are equally violent, but the use different ways to show it. Both genders are trying to dominate and terrorize their partners, and for women it’s far less injuries and physical damages to the male partner.
