On behalf of Prof Martin Gill, Outstanding Security Performance Awards, Säkraplatser nätverket welcomes you to a series of webinars. The first webinar is 31st March 2020, Tuesday 16:30, Swedish time (15:30 BST).
More people are at home, fewer on the streets, logically crime patterns will change, but how? The role and focus of the police (and in some cases the military) changes as staff shortages and different threats emerge. People are being let out of prison early and offenders might feel justified in believing they have a free run, but for what sorts of offences and how? In this webinar you will learn from criminologists in different parts of the world about the types of crimes that are emerging in this time of crisis, and what might emerge as this crisis continues. Specifically, we will discuss:
What signs are there that crime is changing? How are offenders adapting?
As the crisis continues who will more likely be victimised; who is going to be most at risk?
What are the implications; how can we respond more effectively?
