Title: Adapting a tourism crime typology: classifying outdoor recreation crime

Author: Tynon, Joanne F.; Chavez, Deborah J.

Date: 2006

Source: Journal of Travel Research 44:298-307

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Using a qualitative aproach, the authors tested a crime typology developed for tourism destinations in a U.S. National Forest recreation setting. Specific objectives were to classify the attributes of crime and violence, examine the effects of crime and violence on visitor demand, and suggest methods of prevention and recovery. A key modification to the crime typology prior to data collection was to anchor it to crime- and violence-activity categories revealed from an earlier study. Several recommendations are given, with the understanding that they derived from the first run of the crime typology in a U.S. National Forest setting. These include refinements of key typology measures of motivations, victims, severity, frequency, and riots.

Keywords: Crime, crime typology, national forests, violence
