Abstract
Most offenders operate in the vicinity of their homes. The offender’s awareness space plays herein a crucial role. This refers to all spaces of which an offender has knowledge and develops through daily routines. The role of the awareness space has been confirmed in various empirical researches. However, one may wonder whether the importance of awareness space exists only in the most common offending patterns i.e. local offending and what the role of awareness space is for mobile offenders. We have interviewed mobile offenders and our findings suggest that the understanding of the role of awareness space should be differentiated. Spatial awareness does not only provide opportunities for crime, but can actually limit it at times.
