The City is paying out what we have been told is close to $100,000.00 to buy this new program in the hope they can PREDICT where crime will occur next.
Wow, predicting crime, (I GUESS) is the new way of being proactive, NOT. How about letting Officers do their job. Will they be teaching PREDICTIONS in the Police Academy now?
The program states:
PredPol’s cloud-based software enables law enforcement agencies to better prevent crime in their communities by generating predictions on the places and times that future crimes are most likely to occur.
Dozens of communities across the US and overseas are experiencing dramatic reductions in crime thanks in large part to PredPol software technology.
Only three pieces of data are used to make predictions – type of crime, place of crime, and time of crime. No personal data is utilized in making these predictions.
Any good leader would have easily noticed a pattern in crime waves but now the taxpayers are being subjected to pay out all this money for a program that "predicts" where the next crime may occur.
Here's a video the company endorses in the hope of convincing the public the program actually works. It was your election to lose.
