Description

Supplementary Homicide Report (SHR) data was analyzed in order to gain a better understanding of the prevalence and characteristics of domestic intimate partner related homicides in Massachusetts. The analysis was conducted using SHR data collected through the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. The SHR program collects detailed data regarding the age, sex, and race of both the homicide victim and the offender; the relationship of the victim to the offender; the type of weapon used in the offense; and the circumstance and location of the incident. This report includes data voluntarily submitted to the Massachusetts State Police, Crime Reporting Unit by local police agencies as of August 2008.
