“Spatial and temporal changes in crime have important consequences affecting the criminal justice system and other critical policy sectors. After declining through the 1990s and remaining stable for over a decade, violent crime rates climbed in many cities. Very little is known about the factors driving crime trends, and recent studies on this topic tend to be limited to descriptive and explanatory approaches. Spatial-oriented analyses are rarely used to scrutinize the relationship between recent crime trends and socio-economic factors, including foreclosure. The current research focuses on spatial analysis of property crimes in Garfield Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, 2004-2009”
