A percepção da criminalidade (no Reino Unido)

«More should be done to tackle anti-social problems in local neighbourhoods as they have a far greater impact on how safe people feel than the actual number of crimes committed, according to a report on Wednesday.
Graffiti, dirty streets, abandoned cars and noisy neighbours have a far greater effect on people's perception of an area than the real incidence of offences, the Audit Commission said.
As a result, although national statistics show crime has been falling for the last 11 years, most people believe it is on the increase.
"Our findings show that the actual incidence of crime, including serious crime, is not the principal factor determining how safe people feel," the report said.
"For a majority of people, it is their daily experience of anti-social behaviour in their immediate neighbourhood, on their street or estate, or their perception of what is happening locally, that shapes their view."
The Audit Commission said that despite recent initiatives, such as the creation of crime and disorder reduction partnerships (CDRP) between police and councils, most approaches were "too broad-brush".
Instead anti-social behaviour needed to be targeted at a very localised level with more use made of frontline staff such as housing managers and neighbourhood wardens, as well as local people».
