I distinctly remember two different downtown crime studies coming out in the last few years. One of those was the "reality v. perception" CBD study commissioned by the visitors bureau. That one is easy to locate all over the web. However, I remember there being another study that used the phrase "Greater Downtown Area" or something to that effect and included a study area from Belle Isle to the Bridge and the River to New Center. I believe it was also a Wayne State study, maybe not. Does anybody know the study I am referring to and where I can locate a copy of it online?

Thanks.

I don't have an answer to your question. However, I would like to add a question of my own: Does anyone know Detroit's 2007 murder count? I guess I want to know whether there was a significant change (positive or negative) from previous years.

Have they accounted for any of those bodies up in the vacants?

Unfortunately no. It uses the same/similar geographic area but there is no crime data in there. I got excited for a second.

Crime in Detroit may be down but it is still BROTHERS KILLING BROTHERS in the ghetto.

As I mentioned, the "reality vs. perceptions" study is relatively easy to locate, it's this mystery "other" study I seem to remember and can't locate. Still wondering if anybody can confirm this memory or not...

It can be safely assumed that the area you ask about is probably 20-40% of crime in Detroit, the DPD has statistics.
