The rising incidents of crime patterns and trends in Kenya have raised serious security concerns among citizens in general and security agents in particular. In this regard, the National Crime Research Centre has a National Survey with a view to mapping crime trends and analyzing crime incident patterns across the country to inform crime prevention policy and establish a national crime database at the National Crime Research Centre. Specific emphasis was put to: examine crimes patterns and trends in Kenya; establishing the victims and perpetrators of crimes in Kenya; examining the factors contributing to crimes in Kenya; establishing the modus of Operandi of crimes in Kenya; establishing the consequences of crimes in Kenya, and examine crime prevention measures and strategies in Kenya.
The survey was anchored on the crime theory pattern which explains trends and patterns of crimes in a given geographical location. This study was descriptive and was carried out in 47 counties within the Republic of Kenya. 2020 National Crime Mapping Crime Patterns and Trends in Kenya
