Title:The effect of surveillance cameras on crime: evidence from the Stockholm subway PDF Logo
Authors:Priks, Mikael

Series/Report no.:CESifo working paper 2905
Abstract:This paper studies the effect of surveillance cameras on crime in the Stockholm subway. Beginning in 2006, surveillance cameras were installed in the subway stations at different points in time. Difference-in-difference analysis reveals that the introduction of the cameras reduced crime by approximately 20 percent in busy stations. I also show that some of the crimes were displaced to the surrounding area.
