CRIMINAL DATA COMPARISON 2 Abstract Crime is everywhere and committed by all walks of life. It became apparent to police organizations that a program was needed to compile statistics were needed to know where the majority of crime was committed to help with surveillance and to help protect the citizens of metropolitan cities. In the late 1920’s the Uniform Crime Reporting Program became the first national measure of incidences of crime (The Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2011). It is used as a way to measure the effectiveness of police departments and to provide the police departments with the information meant to help them fight crime.

    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.
