Project: Distance decay and property crimes by itinerant groups

project duration
01-JAN-07 – 31-OCT-11
The aim of the research is to test the appropriateness of the existant criminological theories regarding mobility and the distribution of criminality, as contained in the distace decay theory, on the phenomenon of property crimes committed by itinerant groups. Therefore, the hypothesis "itinerant groups guide their operations according to a plan (rationally)" will be empirically tested, the result of which will allow to further develop the existant theories.
