    dark figure of crime


    The "dark figure of crime" refers to the gap between the number of crimes that occur and the number that are reported or recorded by authorities. It encompasses unreported crimes due to various factors such as fear of reprisal, distrust in law enforcement, or a lack of awareness. This concept highlights the limitations of official crime statistics in fully capturing the extent of criminal activity in society. It underscores the importance of understanding not just the crimes that are documented, but also those that remain hidden, in order to develop more effective crime prevention and intervention strategies.
