Launching CrimeMalta: Reactions

CrimeMalta was launched on the 31st January 2008 at the Excelsior Grand Hotel.

At a business breakfast held at the Excelsior Grand Hotel on the 31st January 2008, Dr. Saviour Formosa Ph.D. presented an overview of criminological analysis methods and results as based on a decade of his intensive research about crime in Malta. The activity also served to launch the CrimeMalta which aims to provide easily comprehensible crime information inclusive of Malta’s first crime maps, surveys and research services. The results of the research, the website and its services serve as a base for more information on crime in Malta which is essential to professionals in the field, security and insurance agencies, local councils, academia and the general public. During the event, Dr. Formosa presented an interpretation of his study and its results, which provides an understanding of crime trends in the Maltese Islands, including the incidence of crime, a criminological study of RISC and crime trends by locality. The methodologies presented covered the CRISOLA Model which integrates crime, social and landuse analysis, whilst the RISC Model covered the risk potential of crime for global, residential and vehicular categories.

Mr. Yves De Barro, Managing Director of G4S Security Services (Malta) Ltd. introduced the session and gave a presentation of G4S interest in the field.
