Repeat victimization and crime hot spots have both been growth areas in the study and practice of policing and crime control in recent years. Since their convergence seems both inevitable and desirable , this chapter studies the relationship with two key aims. The first is to describe and explore the relationship. The second is to try to move toward(More)
The Home Office Police Research Group (PRG) was formed in 1992 to carry out and manage research in the social and management sciences relevant to the work of the police service and Home Office policy divisions. One of the major police department divisions which acts as customer for the PRG is the Home Office Crime Prevention Unit which was formed in 1983 to(More)
Participatory design is an essential element of the skill set of professional interface developers and therefore is a significant component of HCI courses at universities. The PICTIVE technique is a 'low-fidelity' collaborative design technique that encourages participatory design. Significant challenges arise when attempting to introduce participatory(More)
Fair, just and accountable assessment for the individual student in the capstone project requires establishing criteria beyond the final project output to meet the objectives of the capstone project experience. Current research is limited and requires solutions that are not subjective, enable formative and summative assessment with student input and are not(More)
A case of a 62-year-old man with an incompletely resected recurrent adnexal skin tumor is reported. The patient had a complete resolution of tumor with external beam radiation therapy. The tumor metastasized to lung and pleura, and the patient's tumor nodules stabilized with methotrexate. The reported experience with radiation and chemotherapy for this(More)
The capstone project is the culmination of a student's academic learning, providing an opportunity to demonstrate and further their knowledge and their organisational, practical, theoretical and communication skills with valuable guidance from industry partners. From the perspective of both the student and the academic, fair, just and accountable assessment(More)
Research on cost-benefit analysis of situational crime prevention is examined and found wanting. The few existing studies do not accurately represent the likely benefits of the situational approach. While measures of non-monetary crime costs are improving, at least four other key areas warrant more attention: First, "routine savings" derive from routine(More)
Empirical work has shown that high crime areas have disproportionate amounts of repeat victimisation. However, there is inadequate theoretical explanation. As a move towards a theory we consider a mathematical model of crime rates grounded in routine activity theory. Using the binomial distribution, victimisation is measured as a series of Bernoulli trials,(More)
