Watch the video “Crime Statistics and the Dark Figure” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzdTiM5wS_c
This video discusses the “dark figure of crime” and why certain crimes are not reported to police.
While watching the film, I want you to think about how society and police could encourage victims to report such crimes. In addition, I wish for you to think about the ‘validity’ and ‘reliability’ (these terms are defined in your notes -from class- and in your book) of crime statistics for different crimes, such as homicide, rape, domestic violence, robbery, etc.
In a one page memo: Please imagine that you are the deputy commissioner of police for NYPD. You are writing your memo to Dr. Keeton, the Commissioner of Police. Explain the top three ways you believe the NYPD and the city government at large, could encourage citizens to report more crime to the police.
