NBC Profiles Santa Cruz PD's Predictive Policing Program

Last week I posted a bit from a New York Times story about Santa Cruz Police's predictive policing program. On Friday night the NBC Nightly News did this story on it.



It's nice to see Santa Cruz PD's efforts getting this much press. After I posted on it last week I got emails from reporters in the US, Russia and Poland wanting some background on the concept.

I also think the exposure is great for the crime analysis profession. Crime analysis is on the cutting edge of improving law enforcement's crime fighting abilities. Crime analysts help their agencies become more efficient at "putting cops on the dots".

What are you doing to help your agency become better at crime fighting?
