Solving Crime On Cowley Road Project

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Solving Crime On Cowley Road Crimes (Listed in order from worst crime to least bad crime.) 1. House burglary. 2. Shoplifting. 3. Bike theft. 4. Non-residents parking in front of residents houses, preventing the residents from parking there. 5. Teenagers breaking into the local school and causing damage. 6. Parking outside shops causing traffic jams and delays. Background information: there is a high population of students in the area due to the nearby university. This means that there are often several cars per household without ample parking space. House burglaries are particularly devastating when there are four or five laptops and televisions in every house. Many students cycle to university and so bike theft is a huge problem. I rated house burglary as 1 because that would have the largest impact on the victim?s life. However it is important to consider whether a smaller but continuous problem would be more frustrating than a one-off disaster. I rated shoplifting as 2 because this is a major problem since there are a high number of small local businesses which cannot afford CCTV systems, but for whom shoplifting affects more than large chains of businesses. ...read more.


Traffic wardens £20,000 6 Total cost £100,000 Solution A would be particularly effective on problems 2, 4, 5 and 6, because although the money spread may not show it, all these problems would have very effective solutions. There would be an even better solution to problem 2, though, CCTV. The problems that Solution A helps to solve are smaller long term, continuous ones that affect a large number of people. It does not have a very big impact on problems 1 and 3, which are larger problems which affect a small number of people at any one time, although 3 is a growing problem. Most of the solutions are quite positive and about prevention rather than punishment for each crime. Solution B: Solution Cost Problems it solves CCTV £35,000 1, 2, 3, 5 Neighbourhood watch £10,000 1, 3, 4, 5 Bike lock areas £15,000 3 Wheel clamping £20,000 4, 6 Traffic wardens £20,000 6 Total cost £100,000 Solution B would be particularly effective on problems 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, which are both more problems and problems higher on the list then Solution A would solve. ...read more.


Also, it can generate negative views toward the council from people within the neighbourhood who are opposed to CCTV. I think that Solution A would therefore be the more positive solution and I would put that one into place. Positioning of solutions Supermarket Hospital Hair dresser Cinema Repair shop Stock item alarm tags Traffic warden Residents parking scheme Key: Pubs Restaurants Take-a-ways Shops College School Play parks and entertainment Educate on property safety I would place a play park across the road from the East Oxford Primary School, and a youth centre off the B480, because the first is near the primary school where children would be, and the latter because it is accessible. I would put stock item alarm tags in all the shops on the high street, because that is where most shops are. I would put traffic wardens all the way up the high street, because that is where most traffic occurs. They would be spread out I would put a residents parking scheme in all the residential streets branching off of Cowley road, because that is where people park illegally. I would educate students on property safety in colleges on educate landlords when they apply to become a landlord, because that insures they will hear it. ...read more.
