Abstract: THE TECHNIQUE USED FOR DATA GATHERING AND ANALYSIS WAS THE CRIME ANALYSIS -- PROJECT EVALUATION RESEARCH TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED BY THE SANTA CLARA CRIMINAL JUSTICE PILOT PROGRAM. THIS APPROACH IS BASED ON THE CODING OF KEY DATA ELEMENTS OBTAINED FROM POLICE OFFENSE REPORTS AND A CROSS-SORTING OF CODED DATA INTO CATEGORIES. TOTALS ARE TABULATED AND ANALYZED FOR PATTERNS, SIMILARITIES, OR UNUSUAL FREQUENCIES. DATA WAS GATHERED ON SPECIFIC CRIMES IN THE FOLLOWING MAJOR CATEGORIES: CRIMES OF VIOLENCE (ROBBERY, ASSAULT, RAPE, AND INVOLUNTARY HOMICIDE); PROPERTY CRIMES (BURGLARY, GRAND LARCENY--AUTO, AND LARCENY); AND CRIMES INVOLVING PROPERTY LOSS. ROBBERY IS REPORTED ACCORDING TO OCCURRENCE BY MONTH, DAY OF EVENT, HOUR OF EVENT, LOCATION, TYPE OF WEAPON, VIOLENCE TOWARDS VICTIM, DOLLAR LOSS, PROPERTY TARGET, AND CASE STATUS.
