  2. Rural Masculinities and the Internalisation of Violence in Agricultural Communities

    Carrington, Kerry; McIntosh, Alison; Hogg, Russell; Scott, John
    This article is based on research we conducted in two agricultural communities as part of a broader study that included mining communities in rural Australia. The data from the agricultural locations tell a different story to that of the mining communities. In the latter, alcohol-fuelled, male-on-male assaults in public places caused considerable anxiety among informants. By contrast, people in the agricultural communities seemed more troubled by hidden violent harms which were largely privatised and individualised, including self-harm, suicide, isolation and threats to men’s general wellbeing and mental health; domestic violence; and other forms of violence largely unreported and thus unacknowledged within the wider community (including sexual assault...

  3. Environmental and Wildlife Crime in Sweden

    Ceccato, Vania; Uittenbogaard, Adriaan
    This article discusses the nature of environmental and wildlife crime (EWC) in Sweden. A review of the international literature helps to frame the Swedish case study. The novelty of this study lies in using 11 years of police records as well as newspaper articles (Media archives) as a basis for analysis. Geographical Information System (GIS) supports the spatial analysis of EWC at municipal and coordinate levels. Since most EWCs take place outside large urban areas, this study looks closely at the cases of EWC in the rural county of Västernorrland. Findings show an increase in both EWCs recorded by the police and covered by the media in...

  4. Women and Crime in the Rural-Urban Fringe

    Rockell, Barbara A.
    This article focuses on human actors and a spatial setting which are rarely the subject of criminological inquiry. Both the actors (drug-involved low-level female offenders) and the setting in which they reside (the rural-urban fringe) have been relegated to some nether world of criminal justice scholarship: they are considered neither significant nor consequential enough to warrant scientific interest, and when they do enter the scholarly picture it is often in a caricature-like way. Indeed, the women of interest here, drug-involved recidivist property and public order offenders, often have been reduced in the media to drug-addled, crystal-meth scarred beings with minimal voice, little context, and even less meaning,...

  5. Factors Influencing Farm Crime in Kenya: Opinions and Experiences of Farmers

    Bunei, Emmanuel K.; Rono, Joseph K.; Chessa, Samuel R.
    Although agriculture is the backbone of Kenya’s economy, the industry is faced with rapid social, cultural, economic, and technological changes that have significantly increased crime levels in rural areas. In particular, communal, social, and individual controls are diminishing, and the result is an increase of criminal activities against agricultural operations. The aim of the study was to assess factors associated with levels of agricultural theft and vandalism in Kenya, based on the perceptions of farmers themselves. The research was carried out in the Soy division of Uasin Gishu County. A multistage sampling approach, which incorporates purposive, random, and systematic techniques, was used to select respondents within the...

  6. Aboriginal Policing in Rural Canada: Establishing a Research Agenda

    Ruddell, Rick; Lithopoulos, Savvas
    Canada’s First Nations Policing Program (FNPP) provides the funding and programmatic structure for policing 535 rural Aboriginal communities. After two decades and almost three billion (CA) dollars in expenditures, however, there has been comparatively little scholarly assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of this approach to policing. This study highlights the current state of the FNPP and we find that most government funded research has focused upon the administrative goals of the FNPP while relatively little government or scholarly attention has been paid to program outcomes. We identified three broad needs for Aboriginal policing research in Canada, including; (a) developing a research based inventory of best practices in...

  7. Developing a Working Typology of Rural Criminals: From a UK Police Intelligence Perspective

    Smith, Robert
    This article develops a working typology of rural criminal types in a UK wide context. It considers strategies used by these diverse ideal-typologies of rural criminals to successfully evade the police intelligence apparatus. It demonstrates hidden links between illegal rural enterprise and local criminal networks whilst concentrating upon the intersection of traditional criminality and illegal entrepreneurship. This article explores the changing landscape of rural crime, positing new entrepreneurial strategies for tackling rural criminality in its myriad forms.
