Predictive Policing or PredPol applies advanced mathematics and adaptive computer learning in contrast to technology which simply maps crime data.
Police departments constantly face budget freezes and deep cuts that require them to use their resources and the best possible way to respond to the public demand of crime prevention and reduction.
PredPol was created to answer to this problem of national security officers. PredPol’s process results in predictions that were found to be two times accurate compared to existing and conventional best practices.
PredPol’s patent-pending technology was based on models for predicting earthquake aftershocks which enables it to forecast “high risk times and places” for future crimes.
