Collective Efficacy

Consider what we learned this week regarding collective efficacy and crime. In general, collective efficacy suggests that the more social activity that occurs in a neighborhood, the lower will be the crime rate. This social activity leads to a willingness to intervene on behalf of the common good. To what extent do you experience collective efficacy in your neighborhood? Do you foresee any difficulty in directly using collective efficacy to address crime in your neighborhood?
