The Value of Nonfatal Shooting Data – A Police Foundation Webinar

Wednesday Apr 18, 2018 - 02:00pm to 03:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

Most law enforcement agencies in the United States do not collect nonfatal shooting data because there is no federal crime reporting requirement. However, nonfatal shootings and homicides are closely related, and analysis of nonfatal shootings can be extremely valuable to departments. Analysis of nonfatal shootings (which occur four times as often as homicides) can serve as part of a larger crime reduction strategy and can help law enforcement better understand the context of local gun violence.

This webinar will focus on defining nonfatal shootings, describing data collection methodologies, and discussing how policy and investigations can be enhanced based on nonfatal shooting data.

This webinar is intended for police departments that do not collect nonfatal shooting data or those that are seeking to improve nonfatal shooting data collection and use. Police department analysts, researchers, and investigators are encouraged to attend the webinar.

Webinar Speakers:

  • Dr. Beth Huebner, Professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice, University of Missouri, St. Louis, and
  • Dr. Natalie Kroovand Hipple, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Indiana University, Bloomington.
