EMCVoice Highlights Smart Policing
On Forbes.com, EMCVoice contributed "Data Analysis Helps Police Departments Fight Crime," which highlights BJA's Smart Policing Initiative (SPI). "The next generation of police work is finally tapping into complicated patterns and oft-underutilized data and applying data science in an effort to make high-crime neighborhoods safer," writes author Erin Richey.

Computer Model Anticipates Crime Hot Spots
A unique collaboration between a University of California, Riverside sociologist and the Indio Police Department (IPD) has produced a computer model that predicts, by census block group, where burglaries are likely to occur. Using the model, IPD has developed interventions to address the problem, and can better anticipate hot spots of criminal activity and deploy officers accordingly. The result is an 8 percent decline in thefts in the first 9 months of 2013. This project was funded with a BJA Smart Policing Initiative grant.
