Crime and security are considered the main points of concern for the Mexican adult population. As part of the Chiba University Post-Urban-Living Innovation program, this study focuses on analyzing the current crime and security situation of a Mexican local urban community to detect relevant information for the future development of design against crime-derived security services and products to decrease fear of crime and improve reported crime rates and trust in local police authorities. Victimization surveys and questionnaires are used to identify important crimes, perceived safety, trust in local authorities and other community members, as well as communication methods and reactions to crime occurrence of members of communities of the south center zone of Mazatlán, Sinaloa. Results indicate that community-based security systems, as well as extended family involvement in the crime situation, may help improve the levels of fear of crime of the community.
