Preventative Tactics

In The News

“I’m not going to get more money. I’m not going to get more cops. I have to be better at using what I have, and that’s what predictive policing is about… If this old street cop can change the way that he thinks about this stuff, then I know that my [officers] can do the same.”

- Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck

The Challenge

Police departments nationwide are facing budget freezes and deep cuts, requiring them to manage their resources more effectively while still responding to public demand for crime prevention and reduction.

The Solution

Based on models for predicting aftershocks from earthquakes, PredPol’s patent-pending technology forecasts highest risk times and places for future crimes. The program complements officers’ intuition by targeting place-based prediction “boxes” as small as 500' by 500'.

The Difference

In contrast to technology that simply maps past crime data, PredPol applies advanced mathematics and adaptive computer learning. It has resulted in predictions twice as accurate as those made through existing best practices by building on the knowledge and experience that already exists.
