Chula Vista Burglary Project

The City of Chula Vista received funding from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) to prevent or reduce burglary through environmental design. The city requested assistance from the SANDAG Criminal Justice Research Division for the evaluation component of this grant.

In order to take the appropriate measures to reduce burglary, it was necessary to assess the nature and scope of burglary and burglars in Chula Vista. To achieve this goal, the division conducted interviews with incarcerated suspects charged with residential burglary and with law enforcement staff, and reviewed a number of burglary incident reports.
