3) Fear of crime and the police
Using lifestyle exposure theory as a guide, this study examines the complex relationship between fear of crime and select lifestyle and individual-level constructs. Participants included undergraduate students. A significant relationship emerged between police visibility and fear of crime in the estimated partial and full models. Results also indicated that student lifestyle choices can impact fear of crime. Multiple individual characteristics, namely gender, race and living arrangement, were positively related to student fear of crime. http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0032258X16676289
