Abstract
One way communities can keep each other safe is through being informed. This writ- ten report explains the background, process, and purpose behind the interactive web- page, Data of Community Safety, found at https://ruthbutters.shinyapps.io/RuthSIP/. While the webpage includes data on homelessness, fatal police shootings, and COVID- 19 vaccinations, this paper goes more in-depth into the data science principles behind the webpage, and addresses broader issues related to community safety. This project is an example of how data science can be used as a tool to help build safer communities.
