Abstract

This paper examines red light camera traffic violations and violent crime, specifically assault and battery, in the city of Chicago, IL. Using cluster analysis, a data mining technique that identifies groups within a dataset, and crime data from the Chicago Data Portal, we searched for crime correlations among different police districts in Chicago. The results found here could give Chicago crime-fighters and government officials insight into the occurrences of overall crime as they work to prevent it.

Crime in Chicago: Red Light Violations and its Association with Violent Crime

This paper examines red light camera traffic violations and violent crime, specifically assault and battery, in the city of Chicago, IL. Using cluster analysis, a data mining technique that identifies groups within a dataset, and crime data from the Chicago Data Portal, we searched for crime correlations among different police districts in Chicago. The results found here could give Chicago crime-fighters and government officials insight into the occurrences of overall crime as they work to prevent it.
