Exposure to crime occurs when an individual’s activities place them in vulnerable situations. The Institute conducted an outcome evaluation of one city’s collaborative problem-solving approach to address student victimization. The city developed a safe passageway initiative, Operation Safe Corridor (OSC), which applies the logic of crime and place research by focusing efforts that seek to modify behavior and reduce opportunities for criminal behavior in the corridor.
