The discussion into the tendency of offenders to commit offenses near their homes or former homes is encompassed with several theories along with the combination of data from police records and residential histories. To be more specific researchers begin with the crime pattern theory and combine the information from police recorded robberies. These findings are generated by the residential accounts of robbers along with the database of postal code areas which creates the concept that offenders are more likely to commit commercial robberies in their pasted residential locations than in otherwise similar places they have lived in.

This information is theoretically vital as investigators utilize these findings to establish geographical offender depictions (Paynich & Hill, 2014). The research produced original empirical proof that relates to the spatial behavior of the offenders which reinforces the crime pattern theory. Also, the likelihood of the offender to commit crimes near their residence was somewhat conditional on their encounters in the local areas. The criminals who have resided longer in their current area of residence are more probable to offend locally, than the offender that has moved to their present location more recently. Although the approximate values were logical and rational, they require more statistical significance. The inadequate sample size, also the influence to have an identical group of offenders and crimes, is most likely the cause of the insufficiency of statistical
