Other studies also included economic variables in their regression models, but the theoretical rationale for their use was not explicated (Bailey, 1982; Bailey and Peterson, 1987, 1994; Fridell and Pate, 1995). Chamlin (1989) found significant and positive relationships between poverty and homicides of police in 2 of 3 models estimated, and Bailey and Peterson (1987) found significant and positive relationships in 6 of 12 regression models estimated. Bailey (1982) and Peterson and Bailey (1988), however, found significant and positive relationships in only 2 of 11 and 2 of 8 regression models, respectively.

For the agencies included in the present study, information only on the total hours of academy training is available. , the total amount of academy and in-service training time may serve as a rough proxy for the amount of time devoted to instruction in officer safety and survival skills. The assumption, then, is that the greater the amount of total training received, the better police are at handling conflict and protecting themselves. Empirical Findings Regarding Police Training There appears to be no empirical research on the relationship of the amount of academy training and homicides of police, but a study by Kaminski and Martin (2000:140-141) suggests that additional training in defensive tactics may increase officers’ abilities to defend themselves from attack and subdue resistive and/or combative suspects.

Fridell and Pate (1995) found positive and significant effects for violent crime (two of two regression models) and property crime (one of two regression models). Jacobs and Carmichael (2002) also find consistent, positive effects between murders of police and the violent crime rate (nine of nine models). They also found homicides of police were related to the civilian murder rate, but not the robbery rate (tested simultaneously in one model only). Field Officer Density As previously discussed, an assumption of opportunity theory is that the probability of victimization is, in part, a function of the spatial proximity of potential victims to motivated offenders (Cohen, Kluegel, and Land, 1981; Sampson and Wooldredge, 1987).
