Understanding Crime started in 2006, is on hiatus, and will return soon with renewed purpose.

When we relaunch, Understanding Crime will help you create news that paints a bigger picture, one that creates understanding. It doesn’t matter if you’re a journalist, citizen, academic, lobbyist, student, or practitioner. In the era of Internet news, you’re involved and can help. The site’s coverage will include the following kinds of content:

  • Resources for understanding crime statistics.
  • Articles written in everyday language about new research conducted by academics.
  • Reading lists that point readers to valuable information about topics as varied as gun regulation, the War on Drugs, crime statistics, and data visualization.
