This study aims to examine residents’ attitude toward the police, with an empirical assessment of survey data collected from both urban and rural areas of Taiwan, a Chinese society that has successfully transformed from authoritarianism to democracy. Prior studies using samples from different Chinese societies tend to find that the assessment of th...

The procedural justice model of policing has gained much popularity in scholarship and empirical support in democracies, yet research on the procedural justice within police organizations, particularly the mediating mechanisms connecting internal procedural justice and officer behavioral tendencies, is rather limited. With an aid of survey data col...
Article
An increasing number of cybercrimes has presented new global challenges to law enforcement agencies that traditionally operate within designated geographical jurisdictions and patrol territories. The borderless nature of cyberspace has brought substantial opportunities—both legal and illegal—to its users, and many local law enforcement agencies hav...
Article
Research into stalking victimization has proliferated over the last three decades, but little research has been done with Canadian data and several theoretical questions related to stalking victimization risk remain largely unanswered. To address the gaps in the literature, this study advances an integrated approach of neighborhood social support f...

The FCB case is thoroughly discussed, inc...
Chapter
This chapter first briefs the development of the Internet and the substantial growth of users in the cyberspace. Accompanied with the convenience that the Internet has brought to the general public and shaped users’ daily behaviors, cyberspace has become an attractive virtual place for crime. While the type of cybercrime is diverse, the intuitive i...
Chapter
A bank is a financial institution that collects and lends money, and ATMs is one of the oft-used applied technology/machine that is attractive to potential criminals. This chapter addresses the mechanical nature of ATMs and then discusses an array of ATM attacks, ranging from those occurred in the physical space to cyberspace. Chapter Two ends with...
Chapter
The FCB case is an unique ATM hacking incident that was successfully solved by Taiwanese law enforcement, while hundreds of similar cases occurred internationally and unsolved. These ATM hackings share very similar modus operandi, and thus the FCB case offers many generalizable implications in practice and theory. This chapter concludes with discus...
Article
The nascent concept of cyberbullying has attracted researchers to study online victimization by employing a variety of criminological theories. The issues of how traditional aspects of victimization constructed in the physical environment could be applied to virtual settings and the extent to which people experience cyberbullying victimization alon...

After unpacking...
Article
Routine activity theory (RAT) was initially proposed to explain shifts in urban crime rates in the late 1970s, and has subsequently been applied to predictions of predatory criminal or victimization events. Despite a number of studies attempting to apply RAT to the vast array of crimes now taking place in a virtual environment such as phishing, fra...

Article
Full-text available
As far back as the early 1990s, the Internet was argued to be a unique medium showing the fastest speed of diffusion in human history (Nguyen and Alexander, 1996). Today, there are very few people whose lives are not affected beneficially and/or harmfully by the technology of the Internet era. On the positive side, the ability to share and exchange...
Chapter
This chapter examines the gaps that arise between reactive social control systems and proactive technology systems. The authors further link these gaps to cybercrime patterns and growth, by a theoretical framework that depicts the role that cybercrime plays in different gaps. This further suggests a typology of cybercrime, based on instrumental vs....

One important dimension of the quality of a graduate program is the quality of its faculty. Previous assessments of the publication productivity of criminology and criminal justice (CCJ) faculties have been needlessly incomplete and narrow, reflecting publications only in a small number of CCJ journals. Assessments covering only CCJ journals fail t...
