Thomas Hargrove, the founder, and CEO of the Murder Accountability Project (MAP) spoke with me on WRCN 103.9FM. The Murder Accountability Project collects data from all around the U.S. making it a complete database on murder statistics that we have. MAP is a non-profit organization based out of Washington D.C.
That’s not all the Murder Accountability Project can do. Mr. Hargrove developed an algorithm, that uses FBI homicide data to detect clusters of homicides. These clusters may indicate that an active serial killer is in the area.
On the MAP website, there are dozens of interactive charts that can be used by researchers and police departments to discover victim, offender, and police statistical data. A user can search by State, County, and Agency in order to obtain the granular details.
MAP is easy to use, even the casual user, as well as the professional researcher, can find exactly what they need. Do you want to know the Homicide Clearance Rates in a particular area? You can do that too. If you are an expert with data and SPSS, there are links for you to download the dataset so you can use it on your own.
