Abstract

The significance of regional aspects of criminality was already recognised in the early examinations of crime statistics. Also at the beginning of the 20th century the statistic data collection covered the place of commitment. The statistical process of these data restricted to the classification by counties. In the first part of the 20th century the task of law enforcement was relatively easy because the place of commitment and the criminal’s domicile was the same settlement, the local policemen knew the potential criminals. As a result of the development of motorisation crimes became more mobilised. By the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century not only the place of commitment and the domicile had got separated from each other but also the so-called moving crime occurred. In respect of crime prevention it means important information to show which settlements are the most endangered ones regarding crimes and which ones serve as the criminals’ domiciles. The system of indicators described in the study may provide help in the examination of the reasons for crimes because observation covers many factors that may be brought into connection with the crimes. I wish to illustrate the methods used to examine the regional features of crimes and the results through the data of a county (villages, towns, subregions).
