Crimes in Kenosha: What are the Trends?
MetadataShow full item record
Crime has been studied for as long as crimes have been committed. There is a solid base of information available that portrays common spatial patterns and trends when analyzing crime. Conducting hotspot analyses of five different crime type, including burglary/theft/robbery, domestic violence, assault/battery, disorderly conduct and drug/alcohol crimes. Often time police have limited time and resources in order to help keep citizens safe, so analyzing where hotspots are located throughout the Kenosha boundaries can help police focus their efforts on specific areas in which clustering occurs. Based off these hotspots, overlaying crime layers with different socioeconomic variables can show different trends as well. The Kenosha Police Department can use this data to gain a better understanding of crime patterns in their jurisdiction and with that they can develop methods of prevention.
