June 2020 Data Releases

This June, the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data (NACJD) at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) released two new studies sponsored by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). 

Evaluating the Law Enforcement, Prosecutor, and Court Response to Firearm-related Crimes in St. Louis, 2015-2018 (ICPSR 37408) examines the entire range of case-processing decisions after arrest, from charging to sentencing of firearm-related crimes. This study analyzes the cumulative effects of each decision point, after a charge has been issued, on the subsequent decisions of criminal justice officials.

Improving Hot Spot Policing through Behavioral Interventions, New York City, 2012-2018 (ICPSR 37284) aimed to develop new insights into offender decision-making in hot spots in New York City, and to test whether these insights could inform interventions to reduce crime in hot spots.
