Reports/Rapports : Rural Crime Prevention: A Literature Review

Source: Crime Prevention Ottawa.
"Crime Prevention Ottawa (CPO) is interested in exploring the issue of crime prevention in the rural areas of the Ottawa region. As a first step to addressing rural crime through crime prevention, CPO chose to embark on a literature review of rural crime prevention."

"Rural crime is any violent, property, or other type of crime that occurs “in the country”. This may be in agricultural areas of land, in small villages or towns, or any other areas that are outside both small and big cities. The rates of violent and property crime recorded by the police are lower in rural areas than they are in both small and big cities."
