I am pleased to announce that CACS has completed work on a recent award from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (2011-BJ-CX-K006). Funding was used to study Criminal Victimization of Nevada Residents, which estimates the nature and extent of non-fatal violent victimization experienced by Nevada residents in 2011. Findings are presented in a newly released State Data Brief, which can be downloaded here.
I am also pleased to announce the recent completion of another State Data Brief: Arrest Related Deaths in Nevada, 2009-11. This State Data Brief presents details related to the arrests-related deaths that occurred in Nevada from 2009 through 2011 and that were reported to CACS. The report includes information on when incidents occurred, demographic information of the suspects, the cause and manner of the reported deaths, the mental/physical condition of suspects at the time of the incidents, the locations of the deaths, and whether suspects were armed. The report can be accessed by clicking here.
