Construction and consolidation of places deemed to be dangerous and designated as such in cities are both the manifestation and measure of the impact of violence, cri- minals and inequality on those societies where these social phenomena take place. In this sense, the general purpose of this article is to provide a spatial analysis of these places from the concrete case study of "Comuna 11" in the muni- cipality of Dosquebradas (Risaralda), and be able to typify them in a taxonomical fashion.

The methodological design is of a descriptive-phenomenological nature with the appli- cation of an assessment instrument aimed at examining the perception local households have in relation to givenspaces in the neighborhood and/or the Commune itself. In this sense, the main conclusion attained was that sceneries like bridges, parks and streets in this municipality are what is known as crime hotspots or crime-favoring places ("luga- res crimípetos") which offer high possibilities of success at the time of committing a crime, due to their socio-spatial features; this condition has an influence on how certain si- tes are perceived by local residents. Finally, the purpose of this kind of information is to build local intervention policies facing the threat of violence, with a significant impact on the opinion of the inhabitants.Key words Crimes, public security, dangerousness, places, hotspots (Source: Tesauro de Política Criminal Latinoamericana - ILANUD).
