The environment one lives in can influence people’s behavior and motivation to act. “When people like the environment they are living in they commit less crime; therefore the environment we find ourselves in has a hypnotic effect on us,” said Majid Saffariniya, head of the National Association of Social Psychology.

According to research, in areas with abandoned houses or old, dirty and corrupt texture, the rate of criminal offences is significantly higher, ILNA quoted him as saying.

“Therefore renovation of distressed areas can also help reduce behavioral problems and the crime rate,” he added.
