Contradicciones entre la situación delictual y la percepción de inseguridad en la comuna de Pudahuel, Región Metropolitana de Santiago

Abstract : The United Nations Development Program (PNUD Chile, 1998) ensures that Chilean people spontaneously associate insecurity with crime. Thus, the supposed increase in crime has provoked a feeling of insecurity in the chilean population during the last twenty years. However, along with crime there is another factor that greatly affects the feeling of insecurity: the perception of the population. The following investigation subjected to analysis the territorial units of the Pudahuel district in the Metropolitan Region of Santiago, contrasting the real victimization with the perception of insecurity that the neighbors maintain about their district environment. To this purpose, an analysis was carried out through the study of the police cases that occurred in each territorial unit in comparison with the survey of perception of insecurity and victimization "Mil Pasajes Seguros para Pudahuel". In this work it is noted that the insecurity in the Pudahuel district is related more to the social connotation of crime and the generation of spaces of fear than to an objective increase in the frequency of illicit acts.
