Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Geospatial analysis of repeat & near repeat residential burglaries
by Drawve, Grant R., M.A., Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, 2011, 68; 1500938
Abstract (Summary)

This analysis explores the formation of stable hot spots and the overall shifts of repeat and near repeat residential burglary over time. Data were obtained from a small college town police department. There were 1,513 repeat residential burglaries between January 2003 and December 2009 that occurred at a total of 356 addresses. Based upon past research it is thought that repeat residential burglaries will cluster in time and space creating stable hot spots and that the centrographic measures of the burglaries will remain relatively constant from year to year. The results found support for the formation of stable hot spots but found that the area in which the repeat residential burglaries were occurring increased over time.
