Reducing residential crime and fear : the Hartford neighborhood crime prevention program by Floyd J Fowler( Book )

8 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hartford project, an experimental effort to reduce residential burglary, street robberies, and fear of those crimes in an urban residential neighborhood, is described. Its most distinctive feature is its integrative approach in which police, community organization, and physical design changes were used to increase the willingness and ability of residents to control their neighborhood and reduce criminal opportunities. Implementation efforts are detailed in terms of: (1) closing or narrowing streets as a strategy for reducing outside traffic; (2) instituting a neighborhood police unit; and (3) creating area organizations to work with the police and initiate resident efforts to improve the neighborhood. The evaluation of the program contains an assessment of success factors including nelghborhood involvement and physical changes. The appendices contain the survey instruments, data collection procedures, supplemental data, and the resident survey interview schedule. Extensive tables and illustrations are also included.

This data collection contains responses to victimization surveys that were administered as part of both the planning and evaluation stages of the Hartford Project, a crime opportunity reduction program implemented in a residential neighborhood in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1976. The Hartford Project was an experiment in how to reduce residential burglary and street robbery/purse snatching and the fear of those crimes. Funded through the Hartford Institute of Criminal and Social Justice, the project began in 1973. It was based on a new "environmental" approach to crime prevention: a comprehensive and integrative view addressing not only the relationship among citizens, police, and offenders, but also the effect of the physical environment on their attitudes and behavior. The surveys were administered by the Center for Survey Research at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. The Center collected Hartford resident survey data in five different years: 1973, 1975, 1976, 1977, and 1979. The 1973 survey provided basic data for problem analysis and planning. These data were updated twice: in 1975 to gather baseline data for the time of program implementation, and in the spring of 1976 with a survey of households in one targeted neighborhood of Hartford to provide data for the time of implementation of physical changes there. Program evaluation surveys were carried out in the spring of 1977 and two years later in 1979. The procedures for each survey were essentially identical each year in order to ensure comparability across time. The one exception was the 1976 sample, which was not independent of the one taken in 1975. In each survey except 1979, respondents reported on experiences during the preceding 12-month period. In 1979 the time reference was the past two years. The survey questions were very similar from year to year, with 1973 being the most unique. All surveys f ...
