The Effect of Surveillance Cameras on Crime: Evidence from the Stockholm Subway
No 2905, CESifo Working Paper Series from CESifo
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.
