Analysis of Crime Shooting Statistics: A Review of Shootings and Various Demographics in the City of Wilmington, 1996-2000

Arthur H. Garrison, Delaware Criminal Justice Council

The Delaware Criminal Justice Council has been involved in the tracking of shooting data for the City of Wilmington for the past seven years. In 2002 the Criminal Justice Council released a report that analyzed the shootings over a five year period (1996 - 2000) looking at 12 different variables including victim / offender comparisons, victim / offender past criminal histories, the motives for shootings, types of weapons, time and day of shootings and location of shootings. The presentation will review the limits in criminal statistics and use of shooting information to reduce shooting incidents in a mid size city.
