A Blueprint for Interagency and Cross-Jurisdictional Data Sharing

Abstract

This blueprint offers practical lessons for launching data sharing, integration, and analysis projects that can better inform crime prevention and reduction strategies, with a focus on spatial analysis. It addresses the major challenges those engaged in data sharing projects will encounter and describes strategies to overcome those challenges. The blueprint also serves as a guide on the spatial-statistical methods that can facilitate cross-sector analysis; new trends in the technology, culture, and practice of data sharing; and the potential for future interagency and cross-jurisdictional data sharing and analyses to inform public safety strategies.
