NYTimes - Erica Goode - Sending the Police Before There’s a Crime - Santa Cruz is experimenting with policing software that predicts crime hot spots so the police can hit them before they heat up. The program was developed with data from Los Angeles during Bratton's tenure as police chief and the LAPD plans to try the program later this year. The hope is that the new program will improve on the success of the CompStat-like systems that "are calibrated less frequently, rely more on humans to recognize patterns, and allocate resources based on past crimes rather than predicted future offenses."
