Cincinnati Police Using Data Driven Policing To Predict Where Crime Likely

The Cincinnati, Ohio media outlet WKRC had a short story on Cincinnati Police and their use of data driven policing to predict where crime is likely to occur. 
According to the crime calendar this week, in Corryville there will be an increase in thefts from autos, because the students have back from spring break. The crime calendar has more police patrolling around campus this week, and more warnings about keeping valuables out of sight.

More and more agencies are using crime data to try and predict where crime is more likely to occur. I'm seeing lots of stories of agencies using predictive policing to improve their effectiveness. Here's another story to add to the list.
