Join us for a conversation around ethics and data, using drug overdose and arrest data from Rochester neighborhoods collected by members of RIT’s Center for Public Safety Initiatives (CPSI). We will show our work on geospatial analyses, as well as early conclusions and lessons learned working with sensitive data. 

Facilitated by:

  • Dr. Janelle Duda-Banwar (Visiting Professor in Criminal Justice)
  • Kayla Macano (GIVE Director, Rochester Police Department)
  • Jennifer Schmitz (RIT Student and Research Assistant with the Center for Public Safety Initiatives)
