Public behaviour : Route crime - industry perceptions Mitchell, Kirsten ; Campbell, Brian

By: Contributor(s): Publication details: London Railway Safety, [2002?]; Railway Safety Research Programme, Description: 176 sSubject(s): Bibl.nr: VTI 2003.0730Location: Notes: På omslaget: Public behaviour. Även med titeln: Railway crime - industry perceptions Abstract: This attitude survey on the problem of route crime and its solutions compared the views of the British Transport Police, and staff in key industry sectors, with those of the general public. It found that the expert groups had a much better understanding of the scale and nature of route crime offences than had the general public. Perceptions of types of offences, ages of offenders and capture rates were consistent with offending patterns. All groups perceived that the number of route crime offences had increased over the previous five years, but without any change in the effectiveness of control measures, although some of this may be due to better reporting. Railway industry groups favoured focusing efforts to reduce route crime in four key areas: the criminal justice system, fencing, targeting hotspots and education. All of these proposed solutions call for increased partnership, both across the railway industry and within the wider community.
