Abstract

Compared to other offences such as burglary (Rengert and Wasilchick 1985) and rape (Amir 1971), there have been few studies examining the spatial behaviour of arsonists. However, studies of these other crime types have shown that it is possible to model offender spatial choices. These studies, which draw on ideas from the fields of Environmental Criminology and Environmental Psychology, have focused on the relationship between where an offender lives and the location of his/her offences.
