Two neighborhoods in Tulsa, Oklahoma, highly comparable in terms of their socioeconomic and built environments, were evaluated on the basis of their crime victimization experience and other attributes relating to attitudes toward crime and security. One neighborhood had been the subject of a neighborhood crime control project, while the other had not. Generally, there were no significant differences between the neighborhoods for any of the social or crime victimization measures evaluated. The analysis suggested that the crime control program was not particularly effective in this context.
