Dear Dr. Crime: Does

Dear Dr. Crime: Does owning a home help protect against crime? Angry & Scared Dear Angry and Scared. That is a very interesting relationship. In fact there is a connection. If you own your home you are safer than in other arrangements. However, the link is apparent only in the affluent areas. It does not appear to hold true in low income neighborhoods. I suspect you would be well advised to buy a home, as well as be careful. The study showing the tie was published in the Journal of Environment and Behavior, and it reported other studies indicating areas showing high home ownership also show lower crime rates. I spoke with a local realtor, Ms. Lisa Brown at Inner Banks Real Estate Group, Inc. and she agreed with the research findings. You are smart to think through what can keep you and your family safe. Go buy a house. Dear Dr. Crime: Admit it, if we tossed juvenile delinquents in the training school they would learn what to expect in the future and not commit crimes! Fed Up Dear Up: A study1 from England just released does not agree with you. Also a study in Texas2 found that no matter what they did with the kids while in training school, recidivism was not reduced. Nor did the commitment to training school reduce future delinquencies. We need to find out some way to reduce the high cost commitments and at the same time protect ourselves as potential victims. Your issue is a critical contemporary one. Dr. Crime is a pseudonym for a social scientist that holds a Ph.D. degree in sociology and in criminology. He has worked in all major parts of the criminal justice system. Drop him a note in care of this paper if you wish or email him at if you child is in “trouble”. 24 Albemarle Tradewinds December 2014
