13.1.1 Semi-structured Interviews Data will be collected via a semi-structured open-ended interview, document analysis, and observation format to examine and question participants' rationale for using CCTV as a crime prevention technology. In semi-structured interviews, on the other hand, participants engage in an open-ended discussion facilitated by the researcher. Semi-structured interviews involve determining the purpose and the scope of the study while developing prepared questions to help guide the study (DeJonckheere & Vaughn, 2019:45). The researcher proposes to use interview guide for data collection guidance and will be formulate the questions according to the purpose of the research. These questions will be contained in interview guide will be designed beforehand.
13.1.2 Focus group interviews The researcher will use focus group interviews as a method of data collection.A focus group refers to when multiple participants (usually between 6 and 12) are interviewed together at the same place and time (Creswell,2013:45). The purpose of a focus group is to elicit information regarding the interactions, relationships, and collective responses of group members who have a shared experience
A focus group refers to when multiple participants (usually between 6 and 12) are interviewed together at the same place and time (Creswell,2014:67). The author proposes to act as a moderator during data collection. The focus group approach (Denscombe, 2007:67) will be used to reveal the diversity of concepts, attitudes, and opinions of the research participants (SME representatives, business association leaders, municipal representatives, and economic experts), reflecting on experiences of distance work
Interviewing focus groups usually consist of a small number of participants under the guidance of a facilitator, usually called a moderator. Focus groups are used for generating information on collective views, and the meanings that lie behind those views.
13.1.3 Semi-structured According to (Creswell,2014:72). Semi-structured interviewing is the most widely used method of data collection in qualitative research. Creswell,(2014:51) writes ‘’This is partly because interview data can be analysed in a variety of ways, which means that semi-structured interviewing is a method of data collection that is compatible with several methods of data analysis (e.g., discourse analysis, grounded theory, interpretative phenomenology’’. Another reason for the popularity of semi-structured interviews is that they are easier to arrange than other forms of qualitative data collection(Babbie & Mounton,2016:50).
