Recently, a couple local journalists reached out to me about an apparent surge in shootings and homicides in Omaha. My first instinct when I get those calls around this time of the year is that it’s probably seasonal variation. But maybe not. So before I schedule an interview, I like to pull the data and have a quick look, if possible. Fortunately, OPD has been posting incident-level crime data on its website since 2015.
Rather than continue listing conference presentations ad nauseum on my CV, I’ve decided to archive them here. For some of these, you can download the presentation by clicking the “Slides” link that appears after the presentation title. Note that a * indicates the co-author is a graduate student.
