This study contributes to crime drop research relating to the security hypothesis which the authors have undertaken with Nick Tilley. We offer preliminary evidence of a lag between the fall in property crime and that in some forms of violent crime. The delay is estimated at three years. The age distribution of violence shows that, proportionally, it is committed by older offenders than property crime, and we offer the preliminary suggestion that a period effect reducing youth crime would take longer to work its way through the population for violence, delaying its aggregate decline. Such a period effect would be consistent with the debut crime hypothesis and the expected effect of improved security.
