dc.description.abstract This study provides a geographic interpretation of crime and fear of crime as well as an assessment of lighting on the Keene State College campus and surrounding areas. The presence or absence of adequate lighting is a key consideration in the spatial pattern of crime. This project investigates the adequacy of emergency blue light phones; and the lack of lighting extending along the Ashuelot Rail Trail which serves as a de facto western boundary of the campus. With the new South Bridge spanning Route 101, the Rail Trail will experience exponentially augmented usage. In collaboration with the City of Keene, this study identifies the specifications of light fixtures in order to accurately identify the number of lights needed and the appropriate distance each light had to be placed from one another along the trail in order to decrease the proven fear of crime on and around campus.
