The IU Public Policy Institute has released its latest report, Crime in Indianapolis: Trends, Sources, and Opportunities for Change. This report reviews factors connected to Indianapolis’ rising homicides and non-fatal shootings during 2015. The overview of 2015’s violent crimes and community-wide issues was a collaborative effort between the Institute and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
Both academic research and knowledge of Marion County's criminal justice system helped identify potential strategies for addressing community-level issues associated with crime in Indianapolis.
