  • The Challenges of Doing Criminology in the Big Data Era: Towards a Digital
           and Data-driven Approach
    • Authors: Smith GD; Bennett Moses L, Chan J.
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper considers emerging challenges and opportunities confronting criminology in the age of Big Data. The mass proliferation of digital media/recording devices into social life is transforming in profound ways how crime is organized, perpetrated, experienced, represented, detected and controlled. Moreover, the extensive daily use of these technologies by institutions and individuals alike produces immense quantities of data that mediate social events, actions and experiences in significant, if subtle, ways. Such data are means of communication, knowledge and entertainment, as well as resources for analytic and criminal manipulation and community mobilization. We suggest that criminology must develop a digital specialism which investigates the multifaceted role performed by digital technologies as intersectional and transformative mediums in the crime and justice field.

  • Driving Politics: Data-driven Governance and Resistance
    • Authors: Smith GD; O’Malley P.
      Abstract: AbstractThe experience of driving is mediated by a politics of data-driven governance and resistance. These politics hinge on the extensive use of networked digital devices/data by road authorities and users. The former operate such technologies to manipulate the behaviour of drivers, while the latter deploy them to subvert the depersonalizing systems of control to which they are subjected. Using evidence derived from two online forums, we explore both the meanings that certain road users ascribe to the simulated justice they experience, but also the mediated practices of resistance they perform. We suggest that this example of ‘technoscientific citizenship’, where in response to unpalatable crime control measures discrete drivers coalesce on virtual forums and share/crowdsource digital data, poses some interesting new epistemic questions as regards emerging forms of public criminology.

  • Making Sense of Big Data for Security
    • Authors: Chan J; Bennett Moses L.
      Abstract: AbstractBig Data technologies hold great promise for improved efficiency and effectiveness for law enforcement and national security. This article explores the potential impact of Big Data on the production of security in society. Building on a Bourdesian framework for analysing police and new technologies, the article draws on empirical data from an Australian study to examine how security agents made sense of the capability and value of Big Data and developed technological frames that envisaged how this new technology could enhance or change their practices. The analysis reveals the expectations and anxieties regarding Big Data among stakeholders and concludes that the community should take a more active role in understanding Big Data and influencing the governance of its usage.

  • Crime Sensing With Big Data: The Affordances and Limitations of Using
           Open-source Communications to Estimate Crime Patterns
    • Authors: Williams ML; Burnap P, Sloan L.
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper critically examines the affordances and limitations of big data for the study of crime and disorder.

  • Crime Sensing With Big Data: The Affordances and Limitations of Using
           Open-source Communications to Estimate Crime Patterns
    • Authors: Williams ML; Burnap P, Sloan L.
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper critically examines the affordances and limitations of big data for the study of crime and disorder. We hypothesize that disorder-related posts on Twitter are associated with actual police crime rates. Our results provide evidence that naturally occurring social media data may provide an alternative information source on the crime problem. This paper adds to the emerging field of computational criminology and big data in four ways: (1) it estimates the utility of social media data to explain variance in offline crime patterns; (2) it provides the first evidence of the estimation offline crime patterns using a measure of broken windows found in the textual content of social media communications; (3) it tests if the bias present in offline perceptions of disorder is present in online communications; and (4) it takes the results of experiments to critically engage with debates on big data and crime prediction.

  • The Effects of Prisoner Attachment to Family on Re-entry Outcomes: A
           Longitudinal Assessment
    • Authors: Brunton-Smith I; McCarthy DJ.
      Abstract: AbstractStrong family support networks are regularly identified in the search for effective inhibitors of criminal behaviour but have rarely been empirically examined in the context of the prison population. Furthermore, we know little about the factors that may weaken or indeed enhance these bonds during a prison sentence. Using data from a longitudinal survey of male prisoners in England and Wales, we address this deficit. We show that visits from parents are influential in improving prisoners’ relations with their family. Furthermore, those prisoners that experience improved family relations are significantly less likely to reoffend whilst also being more likely to find work and desist from class A drug use.

  • Informal Housing, Gender, Crime and Violence: The Role of Design in Urban
           South Africa
    • Authors: Meth P.
      Abstract: AbstractViolence and crime in countries such as South Africa are shaped by deep socio-economic inequalities; however, the spatial designs of urban areas and housing also play a role, but often in differing ways. There is little qualitatively derived research published on the design realities of poor informal housing where the hyper-permeability of housing structures directly shapes residents’ experiences of crime, often in gendered ways. This paper speaks to the wider literature on Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and applauds its recognition of the role of wider social factors in shaping crime and prevention, arguing that socio-political factors are critical too in the South African case. However, this paper calls for a fuller analysis of the particular material and design realities of informal housing, realities that are ever-present across the global South, which in practice can undermine efforts towards target hardening.

  • Neoliberal Governance and the Homogenization of Substance Use and Risk in
           Night-Time Leisure Scenes
    • Authors: Kavanaugh PR; Anderson TL.
      Abstract: AbstractTrends in substance use and risks of harm are partially contingent on the twin regulatory apparatuses of government and economy. In this paper, we integrate prior research on the restructuring of the night-time cultural economy, the state’s War on Drugs and the macro-level production of risk using Philadelphia’s night-time leisure scene as a case example. In doing so, we consider how the reorganization of night-time leisure has affected substance use among young adults such that use patterns and risks of harm are homogenized across nightlife attendees, independent of their genre-scene affiliations. Theoretically, we aim to advance the risk environment paradigm of drug-related harm by considering direct-contact, predatory forms of victimization that result from macro-level shifts reflecting the contradictions of neoliberal governance.

  • A Leap of Faith? Trust in the Police Among Immigrants in England and
           Wales
    • Authors: Bradford B; Sargeant E, Murphy K, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractIt is often assumed that immigrants in countries such as the United Kingdom will report lower levels of trust in the police. Immigrant communities are thought ‘difficult to police’, and minority groups frequently experience problematic relationships with police. Yet, there has been little empirical investigation of this issue in the United Kingdom. In this paper, data from the Crime Survey of England and Wales are used to explore the relationship between immigration and trust in the police. Results suggest that trust is higher among immigrants than among the UK-born population, although there is important variation by time since arrival and experience of policing. Trust in the police is also higher in neighbourhoods that have more immigrants. The paper concludes with some reflection on the nature of trust in the police.

  • ‘Before There Was Danger But There Was Rules. And Safety in Those
           Rules’: Effects of Neighbourhood Redevelopment on Criminal Structures
    • Authors: Urbanik M; Thompson SK, Bucerius SM.
      Abstract: AbstractResearch has shown that ‘street codes’ often govern behaviour and violence in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. However, little is known about what happens to established street codes in a context of massive neighbourhood change. Our research in Regent Park, Canada’s oldest and largest public housing neighbourhood currently undergoing neighbourhood restructuring, we suggest that the displacement of ‘major criminal players’ from the neighbourhood has eroded the long-established codes of conduct they enforced and has undermined informal systems of criminal governance in the neighbourhood. As a consequence, young people express concern over what they perceive to be a growing preponderance of violence in the context of a competitive rush to fill a power vacuum created by the displacement of neighbourhood ‘old heads’.

  • Women at the Nexus of Correctional and Social Policies: Implications for
           Recidivism Risk
    • Authors: Morash M; Kashy DA, Bohmert M, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article addresses criticism by critical and feminist criminologists who fault the Risk/Needs/Responsivity corrections model for ignoring state-created recidivism risks. It examines the connection between women offenders’ changes in access to economic safety net benefits and changes in individual recidivism risk. Longitudinal quantitative data were from 345 women interviewed six months apart in a state with extreme benefits cuts. Loss of monetary assistance and new unmet need for housing aid were significantly related to increased economic-related recidivism risk. Women with consistent unmet needs and those who received benefits had high levels of risk over time. Women with persistent unmet economic need had high levels of other risk that included mental illness and substance abuse. Findings reveal inconsistencies between polices that reduce availability of economic benefits to the poor and the correctional goals of reducing recidivism risk.

  • ‘I Will Blow Your Face OFF’—VIRTUAL and Physical World
           Anti-muslim Hate Crime
    • Authors: Awan I; Zempi I.
      Abstract: AbstractAnti-Muslim hate crime is usually viewed in the prism of physical attacks; however, it also occurs in a cyber context, and this reality has considerable consequences for victims. In seeking to help improve our understanding of anti-Muslim hate crime, this article draws on the findings from a project that involved qualitative interviews with Muslim men and women who experienced both virtual and physical world anti-Muslim hate, and reported their experiences to the British government-funded service Tell Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks. In doing so, this article sets out the first ever study to examine the nature, determinants and impacts of both virtual and physical world anti-Muslim hate crime upon Muslim men and women in the United Kingdom. Correspondingly, we found that victims of both virtual and physical world anti-Muslim hate crime are likely to suffer from emotional stress, anxiety and fear of cyber threats materializing in the ‘real world’.

  • Digilantism: An Analysis of Crowdsourcing and the Boston Marathon Bombings
    • Authors: Nhan J; Huey L, Broll R.
      Abstract: AbstractThis paper explores the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing incident and how members of the general public, through the online community Reddit, attempted to provide assistance to law enforcement through conducting their own parallel investigations. As we document through an analysis of user posts, Reddit members shared information about the investigation, searched for information that would identify the perpetrators and, in some cases, drew on their own expert knowledge to uncover clues concerning key aspects of the attack. Although it is the case that the Reddit cyber-sleuths’ did not ultimately solve this case, or provide significant assistance to the police investigation, their actions suggest the potential role the public could play within security networks.
