Crime and violence are highly socially connected. As criminal justice practitioners continue to learn about the small percent of the population responsible for the majority of violence, they have to use data analysis tools to focus resources (prevention, intervention, and enforcement) on the small world of people at high risk for being involved in violence, either as offenders or victims. This webinar will examine how social network analysis (SNA) can be applied to criminal justice data to better understand the small world of violence.
This webinar is a Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) National Training and Technical Assistance Center (NTTAC) quarterly justice community webinar. During this webinar, Captain Cory Nelson of the Madison, Wisconsin Police Department will highlight focused deterrence programs that have successfully and drastically reduced violence associated with the targeted group of high-risk offenders. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the webinar.
