The paper presents questions for both fields of research to consider and concludes by emphasizing the importance of researching local area violence and vandalism.

From the Paper:

"The two chosen unobtrusive research projects are the behavior trace study of area vandalism and disguised observation of area physical violence. The behavior trace study is based on the concept that vandalism occurs in more poverty stricken areas. Research will be conducted regarding where and when vandalism takes place, how in-depth the vandalism is and whether or not it is reoccurring. The study will also look at whether or not targeted houses and shop owners replace and repair the property damage, how quickly this occurs and whether or not they are targeting immediately again.
"In the disguised observation research study of physical violence, research will take place with local law enforcement agencies, local area statistics and groups. Researcher will join violence groups under the guise of either being an abuser or a victim and will silently observe the number of individuals in the area who both victimize and are victims."
