Unit 2 Recording: Murder Accountability Project

Every year, at least 5,000 killers get away with murder.

Founded in 2015, The Murder Accountability Project (MAP) is the nation's most complete accounting of case information for more than 752,000 homicides going back to 1976. But more than a simple database, MAP exists not only to educate the public about unsolved murders, but also to help law enforcement by providing the historical information and patterns they might need to gain potential insight that can lead to catching the killers.

During this webinar we will share how:

  • Detectives can use these data to test theories about offenders who may have committed crimes across multiple jurisdictions or over very long periods.
  • Police supervisors can use MAP’s website to identify difficult-to-solve case types to aid in allocating resources.
  • Law enforcement professionals can easily determine crime patterns in their community, county, state and even regions.
