Crime clearly affects a communitys safety and sense of security, and it is also believed to have major impacts on neighbourhood stability, urban economic development, education, social integration, and the perceived quality of life. Today, crime and disorder are often viewed as a cause, as well as an effect, of the decline of many inner city neighbourhoods. Fear of crime is sometimes regarded as being as detrimental to society as crime itself.
