Measuring the Impact of Targeted Police Efforts in Dallas: An Examination of Hot Spot Definitions

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



Abstract:

In 2007 the City of Dallas, Texas identified the twenty-one areas of the city with the highest concentrations of violent crime. Targeted police efforts were conducted utilizing multiple resources within the agency and across police divisions. A preliminary examination of the crime trends, within the targeted areas, found limited differences prior and post of the intervention. Further, the limited differences which were found were statistically insignificant. The research presented here addresses this by focusing on micro-changes in reported crimes within the targeted areas, in short by examining differences of ‘hot spots’ within the ‘hot spots’. This longitudinal analysis examines the crime patterns across the city, the targeted areas and the hot spots to test for an effectiveness of the police strategies
