Chicago Police Cameras More Effective When Clustered

Chicago's network of police cameras is more effective at reducing crime in high-crime areas than in low-crime areas, according to a new study. The report, co-authored by Rajiv Shah, an adjunct assistant professor of communication, suggests that blue-light cameras should be concentrated in high-crime areas rather than spread throughout a city. This "hotspot" approach differs from how cameras are used in many cities.
