Partnering with the Police to Prevent Crime Using Geographic Information Systems
AbstractThe advent of geographic information systems (GIS) has given behavioral scientists the ability to map and track a wide range of social phenomena in relatively small parcels of urban space hitherto almost unreachable in an analytic sense. Much more information about what is happening “on the ground” is now available. This enhanced analytic capacity has presented public and private stakeholders such as police departments, housing authorities, school districts, neighborhood associations, and corporate managers with the opportunity to better serve and protect the people and places in their care. Furthermore, as GIS assists one in seeing and understanding behavior patterns, it also provides stakeholders with opportunities to join together in partnerships for the common good. This guidebook is about forming stakeholder partnerships to prevent crime using GIS.
