Catalano explains how changes in social perceptions of crime have contributed to increased correspondence in how both police and victims respond to crime. This correspondence between victim and police crime statistics raises important questions regarding public and official responses to crime over time. In addition, Catalano finds that increases in domestic violence legislation have contributed to increased police recording of aggravated assault.
