Analyzing Your Crime Problem Webinar
The School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University hosted a BJA-sponsored webinar titled "Analyzing Your Violent Crime Problem" on September 23, 2015. The webinar was led by Dr. Edmund McGarrell, a professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University and Director of the Michigan Statistical Analysis Center, and Ms. Julie Wartell, an independent advisor on public safety issues relating to crime analysis, problem solving, and justice systems.
The webinar focused on the strategic problem solving model and how to effectively identify and analyze problems. Topics included how to specify the problem to prepare for the analysis; what sources and types of data can be used; using the appropriate analytic approaches (people, places, networks, contexts); developing "real-time" products and resources for strategic decision-making; and connecting problems to prevention options.
This information is relevant to any practitioner, policymaker, or researcher interested in reducing violent crime and enhancing public safety.
