1. Grajeda, Karina Alexandra. Hispanic/Latino(a)s Fear of Crime in Comparison to White Males and Females.

Degree: MSin Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice, 2020, Texas State University – San Marcos

The purpose of this research was to examine if the Hispanic/Latino(a)s population expressed higher levels of fear of crime in comparison to their Non-Hispanic (White) counterparts. A total of 488 Hispanic/Latino(a)s and Non-Hispanic (White) participants were self-selected to participate in this study. The independent measures include education, past victimization, neighborhood incivilities, perceived informal social control, race/ethnicity, and gender. The only dependent measure used in this study was fear of crime. Results indicated that Hispanic/Latinos(a), neighborhood incivilities, and gender were significant predictors of fear of crime. Vulnerability theory was used in tandem to explain why fear of crime occurs within the Hispanic/Latino(a)s population. Advisors/Committee Members: Bowman, Scott W. (advisor), Roche, Sean P. (advisor), Vasquez, Bob E. (committee member).
