  • Criminology and the UN Sustainable Development Goals: The Need for Support
           and Critique
    • Authors: Blaustein J; Pino N, Fitz-Gibbon K, et al.
      Pages: 767 - 786
      Abstract: The UN Sustainable Development Goals address a number of criminological issues. This article accounts for why criminologists should contribute to this agenda in a way that might benefit the international development community. We acknowledge a heightened risk of crime in parts of the Global South but argue criminologists should cautiously embrace this agenda as a platform for achieving human and sustainable development outcomes. Supporting this agenda means assisting with the design, implementation and evaluation of projects that contribute to safe, just and sustainable societies. From a critical standpoint, it also means challenging harmful or inappropriate initiatives and resisting attempts to capitalize on this agenda for political gain. Both modes of engagement are informed by the values of ‘caution’, ‘scepticism’ and southern epistemologies. The article then proceeds to examine three areas where criminological research can make important contributions: building safe and just societies, eliminating gender-based violence and promoting environmental justice.

  • Sequencing Justice: A Longitudinal Study of Justice Goals of Domestic
           Violence Victims
    • Authors: Holder R; Daly K.
      Pages: 787 - 804
      Abstract: What women as victims of domestic violence want from criminal justice has long interested researchers and advocates. This article foregrounds the ways in which ‘justice’ matters to victims and how a desire for justice may change over time. We find that victims have multiple justice goals, which are ordered and unfold through the criminal justice process. The goals are directed towards three domains of victim, offender and community; and are influenced by both personal and public interests. Accountability is a threshold goal from which others—punishment, deterrence, rehabilitation or another—may be contemplated. From the perspective of victims, achieving justice is sequencing these goals through hybrid processes with differing degrees of victim participation.

  • ‘Money Rules’: Exploring Offenders’ Perceptions of the
           Fine as Punishment
    • Authors: Bögelein N.
      Pages: 805 - 823
      Abstract: Although the fine is often the most commonly used form of punishment, criminology knows little about how offenders conceive of the fine. The present study draws on interviews with 44 offenders in Germany to address this research gap, exploring how offenders use shared ‘patterns of interpretation’ to understand a sentencing decision that can, in the case of fine default, lead to imprisonment. Two ‘clusters’ of patterns are presented here, distinguishable by the extent to which they raise or neglect issues of legitimacy, morality and justice. One pattern—‘Money rules’—is explored in detail, exposing not only the fine’s peculiarities, but also the role played by its pecuniary identity in shaping offenders’ perceptions of the punishment received.

  • The Police Foundation’s Rise: Implications of Public
           Policing’s Dark Money
    • Authors: Walby K; Lippert R, Luscombe A.
      Pages: 824 - 844
      Abstract: A new kind of organization has emerged in public policing across the United States and Canada: the ‘police foundation’. The foundation’s private, nonprofit legal status allows it to engage in private fundraising activities that police, as public bodies, cannot. In many municipalities, police foundations raise funds directed toward police procurement practices and operations. We discuss reasons for and detail the rise and growth of these foundations as they have modeled the New York Police Department’s Foundation and changes in that foundations’ expenditures over time, and examine the key claim that police foundations reduce corruption by maximizing transparency. We draw from literature on financial obfuscation and explore controversies centered on police foundation solicitation and use of private funds in North America. Conceptualizing these private entities as shell corporations that permit transactions in dark money, we raise questions about police foundation transparency. We conclude by discussing the implications for public policy as well as police transparency across North America.

  • Suspicion-in-the-making: Surveillance and Denunciation in Financial
           Policing
    • Authors: Amicelle A; Iafolla V.
      Pages: 845 - 863
      Abstract: The pervasiveness of suspicion throughout society has become a central theme in the literature, especially with the importance of suspicious activity reporting in counterterrorism policies. Yet, little is known about the ‘suspicion-in-the-making’. The article aims to shed light on the production of suspicion as routine work for people and businesses invited to be the ‘eyes and ears’ of the State in the name of security. The fight against money laundering and terrorist financing is the paradigmatic example of how suspicious activity reporting serves as the backbone of policing practices. Drawing on empirical research in Canada, the focus on financial policing provides an opportunity to reflect upon the formalization of the suspicion-in-the-making in general, outside police and intelligence organizations in particular.

  • Corruption Within the Illegal Wildlife Trade: A Symbiotic and Antithetical
           Enterprise
    • Authors: van Uhm D; Moreto W.
      Pages: 864 - 885
      Abstract: This study focuses on the role of corruption in facilitating the illegal wildlife trade. This research attempts to contribute to the literature by disentangling the existence, influence and nested nature of corruption within the illegal wildlife trade based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted in China, Morocco, Russia and Uganda. By utilizing Passas’ concepts of symbiotic and antithetical relationships as theoretical framework, we examine the presence of corruption within illegal wildlife trafficking. Our findings lend support for, and extend the framework with the concept of legal exploitation, while highlighting the unique nature of corrupt practices influenced by different socio-political and cultural settings. Symbiotic and antithetical relationships were revealed through qualitative fieldwork and provided in-depth knowledge behind the social world of wildlife trafficking.

  • Getting Into Deep Water: Coastal Land Loss and State–Corporate Crime
           in the Louisiana Bayou
    • Authors: Bisschop L; Strobl S, Viollaz J.
      Pages: 886 - 905
      Abstract: Isle de Jean Charles is disappearing into the sea. Taking a critical eye to explanations of coastal land loss that focus on climate change as the primary cause, this article illustrates the nuanced drivers of the harm and the ways in which major stakeholders describe it. This case is analysed within the context of coastal land loss in Southern Louisiana. The analysis pays attention to state, corporate and green-cultural crime elements, based on expert interviews, public documents, archival data and field visits. The findings suggest that the contribution of oil and gas extraction to the harm has been under-interrogated. Economic interests may have discouraged social and political actors from discussing or demanding state and corporate responsibility for coastal land loss.

  • Neighbourhood Watch: Mechanisms and Moral Implications
    • Authors: Lub V.
      Pages: 906 - 924
      Abstract: Drawing from ethnographic fieldwork in the Netherlands, this article illustrates how neighbourhood watch schemes contribute to lower crime levels, advancing criminological theory on community crime prevention. The plausibility of assumed neighbourhoods watch mechanisms varies according to the social status of the area in which a scheme operates. The article further shows how this form of community crime prevention is not without moral implications. Exacerbated by the increasing popularity of digital surveillance techniques and securitization sentiments among active residents, stigmatization, ethnic profiling and excessive social control are real issues, particularly in relatively safe suburban areas. Some principles are proposed to limit excessive responses of watch groups.

  • A Qualitative Study of the Crime-control Potency of Traditional Justice
           System in Oshogbo
    • Authors: Ayodele J.
      Pages: 925 - 943
      Abstract: This article examines the implications of the traditional justice system for crime control in Oshogbo. It used qualitative methods and a purposive sampling method to select 35 in-depth, 5 key informant interview participants and 3 major streets in Oshogbo, respectively. Data were content analyzed. The study found that the traditional and formal justices reduce customary and complex offenses with norms and laws, respectively. It concludes that a formal–traditional partnership will reduce criminality. It suggests the reorganization and co-optation of state and non-state systems under an institutional umbrella to reduce crime and improve public safety in Oshogbo.

  • Crowdsourcing Subjective Perceptions of Neighbourhood Disorder:
           Interpreting Bias in Open Data
    • Authors: Solymosi R; Bowers K, Fujiyama T.
      Pages: 944 - 967
      Abstract: New forms of data are now widely used in social sciences, and much debate surrounds their ideal application to the study of crime problems. Limitations associated with this data, including the subjective bias in reporting are often a point of this debate. In this article, we argue that by re-conceptualizing such data and focusing on their mode of production of crowdsourcing, this bias can be understood as a reflection of people’s subjective experiences with their environments. To illustrate, we apply the theoretical framework of signal crimes to empirical analysis of crowdsourced data from an online problem reporting website. We show how this approach facilitates new insight into people’s experiences and discuss implications for advancing research on perception of crime and place.

  • Integrating Social Disorganization and Routine Activity Theories and
           Testing the Effectiveness of Neighbourhood Crime Watch Programs: Case
           Study of Miami-dade County, 2007–15
    • Authors: Louderback E; Sen Roy S.
      Pages: 968 - 992
      Abstract: This study investigates the effectiveness of citizens’ community crime watch (CCW) programs and community crime theories by testing the relationship between CCW programs and crime, integrating concepts from social disorganization (SD) and routine activity theories (RATs). Using data from 290 Census tracts in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States, this study uses conventional and geospatial analyses to test for the effects of CCW programs, SD and RAT measures on the overall rate and change in burglary, robbery and aggravated assault (2007–15). Results show that crime declined between 2007 and 2015 the most in neighbourhoods with CCW programs, and they provide partial support for SD and RAT for each crime outcome. CCW programs have moderate support for reducing crime and geospatial methods are important use to account for spatial heterogeneity.

  • Expanding Moral Panic Theory to Include the Agency of Charismatic
           Entrepreneurs
    • Authors: Joosse P.
      Pages: 993 - 1012
      Abstract: Working beyond latently Durkheimian figurations of moral panic which depict a dialectic between ‘right-thinkers’ and folk devils, this article integrates charismatic entrepreneurs into a tripartite model that sheds light on two new pathways of interaction that are relevant for the sociology of morality. First, charismatic leaders can outflank traditional leaders’ aspersions of folk devils, taking the principle of ‘one-upmanship’ to an extraordinary (and therewith charismatic) extreme. Second, charismatic leaders cancreatively subvert traditional mores, overturning value tables to ‘bedevil’ traditional leaders. Because moral panic and charismatic enthusiasm implicate distinct, complementary, and unitary social processes, I argue that, taken together, the work of Max Weber and Stanley Cohen offer a more theoretically profitable vision of moral denaturation and reformulation than either would alone. Donald Trump’s charismatic ascension during his 2015–16 US Presidential campaign is used to illustrate the theoretical contribution.
