dc.description.abstractCrime script analysis emerged in the mid-1990s when Derek Cornish (1994a; b) borrowed the concept of script from cognitive psychology and applied it to crime. At that time, an event model of offender decision-making had been developed to further understand crime events under a rational choice perspective (Clarke and Cornish, 1985). This model represented a primitive form of script but was limited by its focus on a single step of the crime-commission process-target selection. The concept of scripts offered a framework to provide an account of the choices and decisions made by offenders before, during and after committing a specific type of crime.
