AIREF Research Garners Extensive Media Attention

The findings from a new, groundbreaking study funded by the Alarm Industry Research and Educational Foundation (AIREF) were recently released to the public. The study entitled "Understanding Decisions to Burglarize from the Offender's Perspective," was conducted by Dr. Joseph B. Kuhns of the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. It uses feedback from 422 incarcerated male and female burglars selected at random from North Carolina, Kentucky, and Ohio to shed light on their decision-making processes, target-selection strategies, techniques, gender differences, and effectiveness of deterrence factors.

Since its release via PRweb, an online distribution service, the study has garnered press in nearly every corner of the U.S. and attention from media in India and Italy. A few of the online outlets that have picked up the press release include NBC News, Yahoo! News, Red Orbit, Science Daily, Times Union, and various local news media. In addition, the study has been featured on news broadcasts in Charlotte, N.C. and Los Angeles, Calif.
