Abstract : This research explores the differential effects of victimization, perceived community incivilities, and perceived crime seriousness in the neighborhood on fear of crime at two Air Force Installations located in the Southeastern United States. Households were randomly selected and assigned (N=266), and administered a survey by telephone. Air Force bases provide a unique environment in which to conduct fear of crime research due to a younger population, the absence of unemployment and low income earners, higher education, and lower perceived incivilities and perceived crime than are generally reported in the literature.
