Correct answer:

Aggressive panhandling


Public order crimes are defined as crimes that threaten the general well-being and challenge the accepted mores, folkways, and laws of society. The only choice that represents a public order crime is "aggressive panhandling." On the other hand, "embezzlement," "shoplifting," and "burglary" are considered to be property crimes, while "assault" is a violent crime.
