  • This article reviews the research concerned with crime displacement. It summarizes previous reviews on crime displacement and describes the search strategy used to identify studies for inclusion. It then considers the analytical approach and methodological challenges for studies concerned with crime displacement. This article also aims to study the available evidence on the extent to which situational crime-prevention interventions geographically transfer crime or diffuse crime-control benefits.
