"Within the last few years, risk terrain modeling (RTM) has truly opened up a new way of mapping crime. This book describes this heuristic approach and its statistical method step by step, using many examples and case studies. Police officers, researchers, and crime mappers and analysts will find new keys and new means to act at the microplace against crime. Enjoy this book!"—Jean-Luc Besson, Geostatistician at the French National Supervisory Body on Crime and Punishment , Professor, National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts, Paris 2 University
"Risk terrain modeling (RTM) is arguably the most significant advancement in spatial crime analysis this past decade. RTM not only helps us understand the nature of spatial crime patterns, but identifies what can be done to reduce risk and where that risk reduction should take place. In this book, Joel M. Caplan and Leslie W. Kennedy skillfully articulate its theoretical and empirical foundations, the steps to undertake the risk analysis, comparisons with other methods, and a number of worked examples. This is one of those books that should be required reading for researchers, policy makers, and practitioners who are interested in crime risk reduction."—Martin A. Andresen, Professor, School of Criminology, Simon Fraser University, Canada
