In January 2008, the IUPUI Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR) entered into a contract with the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to serve as local research partner for Indiana Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), U.S. Attorney’s Office, Southern District of Indiana. This report 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.
