CCJR Report Analyzes Violent Crime in Indianapolis

January 16, 2009

This report by the Center for Criminal Justice Research at IUPUI provides an overview of selected violent crime and firearm crime metrics for the geographical area generally encompassing the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) service district between 2004 and 2008. Based on statistical data obtained primarily from the IMPD, the report provides mostly descriptive information about firearm recoveries and shots-fired radio runs, aggravated assaults investigated by the IMPD Robbery-Homicide Branch (primarily cases involving gunshot wounds), and homicides investigated by the IMPD. CCJR is currently serving as the local research partner for Indiana Project Safe Neighborhoods.
