Does proximity to LE stations affect crime rates?
My house is only a few hundred yards away from a local satelite sheriff's station. This makes my wife feel more safe and comfortable in our neighborhood, and it can't hurt as far as response time goes, but I was wondering if that actually has any effect on the frequency/type of crimes committed in the area. I have been unable to find any info online about crime statistics with relation to distance from a LE station.
I understand it is no excuse for being less prepared or vigilant, I was just wondering if proximity actually made a difference in crime rate or type?
