Abstract: Urban violence is one of the most complex problems and has provoked fear and insecurity in society. The city functions as a research laboratory in relation to the problem of violence and crime, since it is in it that most crimes occur. It is in this context that this work has as main objective, to analyze the way the territory of the city of the Beach (Achada Santo António and Palmarejo) is ordered and its relation with the criminality. In order to better understand the problem, a discussion of the concepts of territory, territorial planning, crime (violence) and the application of a questionnaire survey to local populations and interviews the National Police and Judiciary Police. The districts of Achada Santo António and Palmarejo were taken as object of observation (study) because they are more populous and complex (involving different social classes). The results show that the two districts grew in two completely different ways, a growth of planned territory occupation, where the population resides in most social classes (medium and high), with better infrastructure and security, while the other with growth Of occupation of the unplanned territory, where it concentrates population of lower social classes with deficits of infrastructure and security. The crime occurs with greater intensity in the unplanned / ordered territories (Monte Vermelho, Casa Lata, Palmarejo Valley, Dinós, Kelém, Brazil and part of the Middle of Achada that borders the Palmarejo Valley). However, in the planned / ordered territories (Palmarejo Centro, Palmarejo Base and Middle of Achada Central), the crime is registered in a smaller amount, especially the robberies and thefts, which are the most practiced crimes. Most crimes are related to young people, especially those considered "thugs". However, a good part of them happens in the nocturnal period, due to poor public illumination, poor planning in urban terms (precarious constructions and narrow streets), little movement of people and lack of vigilance. However, unplanned / ordained occupation territories are more susceptible to the commission of the crimes and of a greater sense of insecurity and fear of it. Faced with this, several factors contribute to the emergence and increase of crime, such as: lack of education, unemployment and lack of occupation, lack of street policing, self-will and influence, urban disorder, drug and weapons use, lack of social and among others. Thus, it is essential to assume in a consistent way the territorial planning and qualification of urban territories in the agenda of public policies to combat crime and to reduce the feeling of urban insecurity and fear of crime.
