Analysis of Shootings by Combining Social Network Analysis and Spatial Analysis

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Existing studies have indicated the utility of social network analysis in understanding the complexity of shooting events and in reducing gun violence through focused interventions. Social network analysis can also be an important investigative support tool to analyze victims’ and offenders’ known associates. The analytical technique can further be leveraged by combining it with spatial analysis. Such an approach can be particularly useful to uncover relationships that may exist across police divisions and districts. The current study examines the extent of inter-divisional shootings, characteristics of such shootings, and discusses the practical utility of the suggested approach in policing and investigations.
