PredPol’s first-of-its-kind technology gives police a significantly better way to fight gun violence by adding cutting edge analytics to veteran experience. It’s about predicting where and when future gun crimes are most likely to occur so patrol officers can complete their most important mission.
Only What, Where and When – Not Who
PredPol uses only three data points in making predictions: past type of crime, place of crime and time of crime. It uses no personal information about individuals or groups of individuals, eliminating any privacy and profiling concerns.
Gun violence predictions are as accurate as PredPol’s proven predictions for crimes like burglaries and auto thefts — anticipating twice as many crimes as traditional hotspot mapping. That’s giving police twice as many opportunities to deter and reduce.
Past homicides do not necessarily produce the best forecasts of future gun violence. In fact, the occurrence of precursor crimes like weapons violations, assaults, and batteries provide as much or more information.
The gun violence predictions come as part of PredPol’s overall crime prediction package. For more information, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
