Statistics Canada crime report
Queen’s sociology professor Vincent Sacco will be available tomorrow to discuss Statistics Canada’s annual report on crime. The report examines trends in the rates and severity of both overall and violent crime for the nation, provinces, and census metropolitan areas for 2009.
Professor Sacco will read the report when it’s released at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday July 20 and be available for comment throughout the day.
Professor Sacco’s interests relate to the study of criminology, as well as the study of public perceptions of and reactions to crime. In approaching criminology, his work emphasizes the study of “criminal events” and investigates why some people, rather than others, are more likely to be victimized by crime; when and where crimes occur; and why the police, lawmakers and members of the general public think about crime as they do.
