Fear of crime

Perceptions of crime can have nearly as much impact on a community as actual crime and victimization rates. People who believe they live in safe neighborhoods and communities are likely to become more engaged and involved in physical, social and volunteer activities. Employers are more likely to locate businesses in communities perceived as safe by their employees and customers.
