Crime Mapping Case Studies: Practice and Research.
Crime Mapping Case Studies: Practice and Research cover image Edited by Spencer Chainey and Lisa Tompson.
Chichester, England; Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, ©2008.
"Crime Mapping Case Studies: From Research to Practice_provides a series of key examples from practice and research that demonstrate applications of crime mapping and its effect in many areas of policing and crime reduction. This book brings together case studies that show how crime mapping can be used for analysis, intelligence development, monitoring performance, and crime detection and is written by practitioners for practitioners.
Leading researchers in the field describe how crime mapping is developing and exposing analytical methodologies and critiquing current practices. Including global case studies that demonstrate a particular application, analytical technique or new theoretical concept, this text offers a truly global overview of this rapidly growing area of interest.
Unlike other texts on this topic, this book identifies mistakes and challenges in this field of enquiry to aid the reader in understanding the basics of this technique, giving them the opportunity to learn further." - (publisher's description)

Geographic Information Systems and Crime Analysis.
Geographic Information Systems and Crime Analysis cover image Edited by Fahui Wang.
Hershey, PA: Idea Group Pub., ©2005.
"Computerized crime mapping or GIS in law enforcement agencies has experienced rapid growth, particularly since the mid 1990s. There has also been increasing interests in GIS analysis of crime from various academic fields including criminology, geography, urban planning, information science and others. This book features a diverse array of GIS applications in crime analysis, from general issues such as GIS as a communication process and inter-jurisdictional data sharing to specific applications in tracking serial killers and predicting juvenile violence. The book showcases a broad range of methods and techniques from typical GIS tasks such as geocoding and hotspot analysis to advanced technologies such as geographic profiling, agent-based modeling and web GIS. Contributors range from university professors, criminologists in research institutes to police chiefs, GIS analysts in police departments and consultants in criminal justice." - (publisher's description)

Space, Time, and Crime, 2nd edition.
The Assessment and Treatment of Women Offenders: An Integrative Perspective cover image By Kim Michelle Lersch.
Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press, ©2007.
Series: Wiley Series in Forensic Clinical Psychology.
"The second edition includes updates of the material in each chapter. The reader is provided even more real-world examples from the field, making the material more concrete. Additionally, extensive sections that address temporal aspects of criminal events, including the concept of time geography, have been added.
Interest in the spatial distribution of crime and criminals has experienced a virtual explosion over the past several years. In Space, Time, and Crime, Lersch provides an overview of the various theoretical explanations, crime control policies, and practical investigative tools used to identify high crime places, spaces, and times. Throughout the text, Lersch strives to provide a highly readable, informative discussion of the important issues surrounding the geography of crime, providing real world examples as well as illustrations from previously published research.
Space, Time, and Crime provides a basic overview of the more popular theories that have been used to explain the concentration of crime in certain places and times. Each theory is carefully and clearly developed from its historical roots to contemporary applications, with solid research cited throughout the discussions. The reader is then moved from theory into practice, where a summary and critique of a number of various theoretically-driven practical policy applications are presented. The basic elements of crime analysis and crime mapping, both very popular crime fighting tools for police agencies and place managers, are presented. Finally, the book closes with a strong Marxist-based critique of the various theories, policies, and tools, leaving the reader with some troubling questions to ponder.
This book includes sections on a number of the more exciting and controversial issues facing criminal justice today, including community policing, problem oriented policing, crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED), situational crime prevention, the COMPSTAT model for managing police resources, identifying and controlling hot spots, crime displacement and other ethical issues surrounding crime prevention, and environmental justice." - (publisher's description)

The Technology of Policing: Crime Mapping, Information Technology, and the Rationality of Crime Control.
The Technology of Policing: Crime Mapping, Information Technology, and the Rationality of Crime Control cover image By Peter K. Manning.
New York, NY: New York University Press, ©2008.
Series: New Perspectives in Crime, Deviance, and Law Series.
"With the rise of surveillance technology in the last decade, police departments now have an array of sophisticated tools for tracking, monitoring, even predicting crime patterns. In particular crime mapping, a technique used by the police to monitor crime by the neighborhoods in their geographic regions, has become a regular and relied-upon feature of policing. Many claim that these technological developments played a role in the crime drop of the 1990s, and yet no study of these techniques and their relationship to everyday police work has been made available." - (publisher's description)
