Moped enabled mobile phone snatches
A tale from two London boroughs
This research utilises both quantitative and qualitative methods to further examine the rapid growth of moped enabled mobile phone snatches across two London boroughs. It demonstrates how the availability of suitable victims and the roads system influences moped enabled mobile phone snatches.
The research suggests a number of crime reduction initiatives which could be adopted and studied further as to their effectiveness. The research concludes that there isn’t a single solution to this rapid growth in moped enabled mobile phone theft.
