Collective Efficacy and Fear of Crime in the Mat-Su Borough
Group: University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center
The purpose of this article is to explore the relationship between fear of crime and three possible explanatory factors. The first of these is collective efficacy, which refers broadly to the community’s ability to control the behavior of its inhabitants and to organize when needed to attract amenities and repel negative influences. The second is social ties, which is a measure of how socially connected people are to others in their neighborhoods. The third explanatory factor is disorder, specifically, how many indicators of both social (e.g., public drug sales, panhandling, and loitering) and physical (e.g., abandoned buildings, trash, and graffiti) disorder are reported by survey respondents.
