Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $95,350)

Temple University will create a simple-to-use, stand alone computer program that will allow researchers and police practitioners to detect the 'near repeats phenomenon' and to better predict where and when repeat crime events may occur. The software program will help crime analysts determine patterns of repeat and near-repeat victimization in their jurisdictions across a range of spatial and temporal scales.
