Add comment on:What's Predictive Policing?
Predictive policing, with roots in business analytics, relies on using advanced technological tools and data analysis to take proactive measures to “pre-empt” crime. Regarded as a refinement of “intelligence-led policing” - which came to the US from the UK where it has led police to focus on research-based approaches rather than responding to service calls - predictive policing appears to take another large step away from community policing and accountability.
