The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Harrison Neighborhood Crime and Safety Data.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

Harrison Neighborhood Association receives monthly crime statistics from their CCP/Safe officer showing the locations of various crimes in the neighborhood. The data is not in a useful format and does not allow views of crime over time for instance. The neighborhood wanted to put the maps in an electronic format that was compatible with their GIS parcel data. Paper copies of crime statistics were added as a GIS layer by placing points on a map of the neighborhood. Attribute data was added for the month the crime occurred and the type of crime (homicide/rape, burglary, auto theft, assault). The resulting GIS layer makes it possible to display crimes in Harrison over time and by type of crime, allowing neighborhood staff to identify areas of persistent crime and focus outreach efforts.
