Do Community Members Look Out for Each Other?
9:50 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., Room C2-28
The "broken window" theory states that maintaining urban environments in a well-ordered condition may reduce more serious crimes. But does it also increase the likelihood that community members will report crimes in their neighborhood? Students from Dr. Frei's Applied Psychology class will look at whether street cleanups, neighborhood gardens, and other aspects of community-building are related to people's propensity to report crime and present the results from a recent city-wide survey on the topic.

From Filthadelphia to Philadelphia: Improving Community through Green Initiatives
11:10 a.m. to 12:35 p.m., Room C2-28
One method of creating a sense of community is through green initiatives, which not only improve urban environments but also benefit the long-term sustainability of the community. Margaret Stephens will lead a panel discussion on various green initiatives in the Philadelphia area. Panelists include Katherine Gajewski, Director of Sustainability for the City of Philadelphia and Francis Lawn, Project Manager of the Roots-to-Reentry Program for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
Moderator Margaret Stephens, Associate Professor of Social Science


Opening remarks by Michael Resnick, Philadelphia Director of Public Safety
12:45 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., Room C2-28

Reaching Out: Technology and Reporting Crime
1:00 p.m. to 2:10p.m., Room C2-28
LatanŽ and Darley's model of helping behavior states that people will be more likely to help another person if the cost of helping is low. One method of reducing the cost of helping is by providing people with a method of reporting crime quickly, easily, and anonymously. Students from Dr. Frei's Applied Psychology class will look the history of using technology to report crime (the police box, 911, anonymous tip lines etc.) and report results from a recent city-wide survey on the topic. The discussion will include a review of iWatchPhiladelphia, a new Smartphone application that allows the user to report suspicious/criminal activity or submit video of crimes recorded on a cell phone and then send the information anonymously to iWatch, which then forwards the information to the police. Panelists will also discuss the use of technology to report crimes against animals, as well as how to recognize the difference between 311 calls and 911 calls. Panelists include Dan Elliott, CEO of iWatch and Phil Arkow of AnimalTherapy.net.
