Kansas City Gun Experiment The Kansas City Gun Experiment was a preventive patrol experiment carried out between 1992 and 1993 in Kansas City. The primary objectives of this project were to reduce gun-related crimes and homicides as well as drive-by shootings in the target area. During the duration of the program, the Kansas City Police department increased the number of patrols in the areas of the city that were considered hotspots for gun crime. Officers involved in the project had to work overtime, including weekends. Their efforts focused on gun detection through proactive patrols (Sherman, Shaw & Rogan, 1995). The research design used in this experiment was an analytical cross-sectional study design. This is because it investigated the relationship between police patrols and gun crimes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
