UIC Sociology’s Policing in Chicago Research Group releases important findings on the Chicago gang database

The UIC Policing in Chicago Research Group is a workshop that brings faculty and students at UIC into conversation with community organizations in Chicago. Led by Professor Andy Clarno, the research group is exploring the ways that advanced data analysis and coordination between local and federal law enforcement agencies have transformed policing in Chicago. You can read their full analysis here.
