JUNE 03, 2022 (NewsRx) — By a News Reporter – Staff News Editor at NewsRx Policy and Law Daily — A new study on risk management is now available. According to news from Coventry, United Kingdomby the editors of NewsRx, the research said: “Encompassed within the framework of opportunities for crime embedded in social disorganization theory and broken windows theory, this article intends to explore models of four types of acquisitive crimes, using social media data, i.e.”

Our editors got a citation from the research of University of Warwick: “Twitter, Foursquare and cross-sectional data acquired using the text analysis technique. With Greater London As a study area, models such as Negative Binomial Regression (NBR) and Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) are run to illustrate the aggregate relationships between acquisitive crimes and crime opportunities at Londonnational and sub-regional MSOA levels respectively. The results support the following hypotheses: tweet sentiment might positively reflect property crime rates in light of the broken windows theory; more tweets with negative sentiment can lead to increased acquisitive crime.

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “It contributed to existing studies by (1) providing empirical evidence for the integration of these three theories; (2) complement current research on local differences in acquisitive crimes using both GWR and NBR models; (3) challenge traditional stereotypes about racial disparities by finding that ethnic heterogeneity and instrumental crimes have a counterintuitive association, especially when considering the education factor; (4) imply some localized learned crime prevention strategies with policy makers in light of the fact that the relationship between local variations and different types of crime may vary by location.
