This article analyses permeability across a metropolitan area through conceptualizing and operationalizing a macrolevel crime pattern theory in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Three municipality-level indices reflecting internal and boundary permeability are developed that are internally consistent and cross reference in sensible ways with large-scale physical environment features of municipalities. Permeability indicators link as predicted with unexpected violent and property crime changes
