Internet Burglary: The Vicarious Creation of Cognitive Maps

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The choice of targets by offenders has been a research interest for many years. Burglars have received a great deal of attention. A primary conclusion of many studies has been that offenders make target choices from those areas and potential targets with which they have some knowledge. That knowledge most often comes from casual observation of areas they frequent for non-offending reasons. The advent of sophisticated mapping technology that is readily viewable on the internet, however, has the potential of allowing offenders to gain a great deal of visual knowledge of potential targets and their surrounding area without ever having to leave one’s home. This paper explores the potential to develop detailed cognitive maps through the use of currently available internet resources and the implication of that ability on prevention efforts.
