Data-based crime prevention and predictive policing

Big data analysis helps determine the most likely causes of new or emerging crime trends in different areas of the city. For instance, data analytics combined with real-time facial recognition, CCTV video linkages, and license plate scanning; analyze where a crime is most likely to take place on a specific date and time. Law enforcement agencies can use these insights to monitor specific neighborhoods showing increased crime, identify causes that have been determined to affect crime rates, identify individuals that have a higher risk of recidivism and increase officer patrols in areas with a higher likelihood of crime.
