Wilson and Cieplowski Present Research
On Saturday, March 5, 2011, Kevin Cieplowski, B.A. in Criminal Justice, 2009 and Dr. H. "Jimmy" Wilson presented their research on crime analysis at the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) annual conference, held in Toronto, Canada. Their research focuses on utilizing GIS to analyze crime and socio-economic variables in the community. Specifically, their research focused on a spatial analysis of property crime in Garfield Heights, Ohio committed between May 2004 and April 2009, and trying to geographically correlate the occurrence of these crimes with social, economic, and foreclosure data. As a result of their research and presentation, they were contacted about turning their research into a book chapter for an upcoming textbook on crime analysis.
