Yes, but there are challenges detecting them. In this seminar, Ben Rosher (a Q-Step undergraduate  Political Scientist, University of Glasgow), Ellie Bates (AQMeN Research Fellow in Criminology) and Nema Dean (Lecturer in Statistics, University of Glasgow) will discuss their pilot project examining open source police recorded violence in South Yorkshire. In this project the team sought to produce replicable analysis in R, which tidies, explores, analyses and maps this phenomena.

This event will take place on Monday January 29 from 2pm-3.15pm in the 6th floor Staff Room of the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
