Policing, Offenders, Victims, and the Spatial Distribution of Crime

Thu, Nov 15, 9:30 to 10:50am, Marriott, M104, Marquis Level

Session Submission Type: Complete Thematic Panel

Abstract

The papers in this panel link the spatial patterns of offenders, targets, and the police. One paper considers arrest rates by race across neighborhoods for less serious crimes as a measure of police discretion. A second paper shows how targeting hot spots of crime can disproportionately impact minority communities. A third paper considers the spatial patterns of victims of crime events, and the extent to which they are victimized in locations similar to where they live. The final paper simultaneously considers the spatial patterns of offenders, targets, and the crime location to explore these victim/offender crime triangles.
