Public perceptions of crime

2010-03-19

Vincent Sacco, expert in criminology and the study of public perceptions of and reactions to crime, can discuss the Statistics Canada report on perceptions of incivility in the metropolitan landscape being released tomorrow.
A professor with the department of sociology, Dr. Sacco’s research examines the ways in which particular images of crime problems are socially constructed and the roles mass media play in this process. He recently co-authored The Criminal Event: An Introduction to Criminology in Canada (2007).
