Research Project Hopes to Lessen the Impact of Automobile-Linked Crime in Canada
Posted Tuesday, July 26, 2005 9:15 AM

AUTO21 recently awarded $435,000.00 to fund a two-year research project, “Antisocial Behaviour and the Automobile: Automobile-Linked Crime in Canada.” Project leaders are Dr. Rick Linden of the Department of Sociology, and Dr. Robert Mann and Dr. Reg Smart, both of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto.

The project consists of five cross-disciplinary themes that focus on understanding the individual and environmental determinants of automobile crime, and on identifying potential prevention initiatives and policies. One of the projects that will be conducted in Winnipeg is an evaluation of the major auto theft prevention initiatives recently announced by Manitoba Justice and by Manitoba Public Insurance.

AUTO21 is a national research initiative supported by the Government of Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence Directorate and over 110 industry, government and institutional partners.
