  SAC Spotlight: Oklahoma


Recent publications are available the Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center's Website

A list of the Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center's recent publications include:

Police Planning and Problem Solving Through Incident-Based Reporting Data
Staff analyzed 1,509 domestic violence incidents in Muskogee, Oklahoma, to identify trends and characteristics. The project included three components: descriptive statistics, content analysis (of the narratives), and crime mapping.

Oklahoma Crime Victimization Survey, 2011
Staff conducted the second crime victimization survey, which included a sample of 794 adults in Oklahoma. In addition to questions about possible victimizations, participants were also asked about their perceptions of law enforcement and safety concerns in their communities.

An Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Gang and Violent Crime Program
Staff evaluated the effectiveness of the gang and violent crime reduction program and provided recommendations for sustainability. This publication won the 2010 Phillip Hoke National Publication Award for Excellence in Analysis, awarded by the Justice Research and Statistics Association.

An Evaluation of the Oklahoma City Comprehensive Anti-Gang Initiative
Staff evaluated the effectiveness of the program and provided recommendations for sustainability. This initiative consisted of three parts: enforcement and prosecution, prevention and intervention, and prison reentry. Staff provided feedback throughout the program and analyzed crime data for the targeted areas. Consequently, the Oklahoma City Police Department implemented the recommended sustainability plan and funded the elements determined to be successful.

State Incident-Based Reporting System Participation, 2013
Staff analyzed statewide participation for SIBRS, including population and index crime coverage. Staff conducts this analysis each year to inform agency leadership about changes in participation and population coverage. This information is used for planning and to target agencies still reporting crime statistics in summary format. This analysis is also used to better understand crime statistics for the state, specifically considering data quality issues.

Crime in Oklahoma
The Field Services Unit (FSU) of the OSBI is responsible for the collection, submission, and dissemination of crime statistics, which includes the creation of an annual report. SAC staff created a SIBRS chapter that has been included in the publication since 2010.
