Project Details


During the next grant period, N3 will complete interviews in District 25. Specifically as well as continue its expansion of interviews and observations into District 15. During this grant period N3 will have finished integrating the various quantitative datasets described above, come up with meaningful spatial comparisons for the quasi-experimental analyses, and have preliminary results comparing outcomes in the treatment areas (in District 25) with those in the control areas. N3 is also working closely with CPD and The Policing Project to ensure we gain access to new sources of data that are being created vis-à-vis NPI within the districts. Final reports and presentations related to the initial pilot in District 25 will also be completed, delivered to NYU and a plan for dissemination to relevant partners will be developed in collaboration with The Policing Project. * * * The Principal Investigator, Papachristos, will oversee all aspects of project implementation; Papachristos will oversee all aspects of research design and evaluation. The PI will work on project-related research, including the writing and presentations of results. All evaluation related research will be led by Papachristos and will hire and train the project team. The Data Scientist (Sushmita Gopalan) will be charged with overseeing the cleaning, coding, and all projected-related analyses under the direction of Papachristos. The DS will work full-time at Northwestern directly under Papachristos on daily project analytic needs including all quantitative analyses, the coding of qualitative and textual data after transcription, analyses of survey data, and report writing.
