Citizens often receive conflicting information when it comes to crime and how it affects their neighborhoods. One day you may hear from the local news that crime has taken over the streets of Lexington. On other days you recieve information that more Police Officers have been hired, that a Police task force has made arrest, or new statistics show that Lexington is a safe place to live. How can the average citizen sort through all the contradictory information? How do things like the staffing levels of the Police Department affect the number and types of crimes committed in a specific location?
