Dr. Troy Payne, Justice faculty, has published an article in Criminology, Criminal Justice, Law & Society.  The article is titled "The Importance of Small Units of Aggregation: Trajectories of Crime at Addresses in Cincinnati, Ohio, 1998-2012."  

With his coauthor, Dr. Kathleen Gallagher (The Analysis Group), Dr. Payne examined the long-term trends of crime at addresses in Cincinnati, OH 1998-2012.  The authors found that crime is concentrated within a relative handful of addresses.  They also found that high-crime addresses coexist with low-crime addresses on the same block.  The implications for policy and practice are discussed.
