An example of a stat map that will be presented at the “Neighborhood Gathering” on May 16.
By regularly looking at St. Paul crime data, Commander Kevin Casper said he is able to “keep drilling down” on crime in East Side neighborhoods.
Casper will give a community presentation on Thursday, May 16, on the department’s “stat mapping” techniques, as a way of connecting with residents to fight crime going into the warmer months when criminal activity usually spikes.
