Measuring the effect heterogeneity of police enforcement actions across spatial contexts

Eric L. Piza and Andrew M. Gilchrist

Journal of Criminal Justice, 2018, vol. 54, issue C, 76-87

Abstract: This study tests whether the effect of police actions is influenced by similar crime generators and attractors (CGAs) that influence crime. Said differently, in recognition that the presence of CGAs presents higher risk of crime at certain places, we test whether CGAs similarly create a situation where specific police enforcement actions are more effective at certain types of places than others.
