Ripeness and Hot Spots in Time: Possible Futures in Micro Place-Based Policing  (Article)

Place-based policing is known to help decrease crimes. Specific areas have properties that make them more attractive for specific types of crimes. Crime analysis seems to have moved from a more generalized mapping of hot spots to a more finely-grained map. The term “Micro” has become common in geospatial studies.

In policing, predictive analytics uses micro-level analysis, which allows crime analysts to make more mathematically sophisticated analyses of place and crime. Using predictive analytics, one can identify areas where increased police patrol is required to deter criminal activity.

At the September 2014 IACA, Training Conference I demonstrated a prototype technique to identify grid squares, wherein specific crime types were occurring at unusual levels. At the end of that demonstration, I proposed several phenomena for future study. The purpose of this paper is to further explain and identify methods to isolate these phenomena.

Touting Prevention, Police Put Crime Info Online (News)

Reporting for Stateline, a national policy blog initiative with The Pew Charitable Trusts, Jenni Bergal highlights how police departments are using data to map crime online. She finds that police departments are using digital crime maps, like RAIDS Online, to make crime information available to the public. RAIDS includes "density map" analysis and other tools that are being implemented by law enforcement.

Through online crime mapping sites, agencies have better identified problem areas and can police smarter, as well as raise public awareness about certain crime sprees or public safety in general. With these tools, the public also has access to crime data and can make better decisions on how to stay safe without directly contacting local law enforcement with questions.

Bergal also analyzes Indiana's efforts at mapping the location of methamphetamine lab seizures and making that data available online, which has led to interest from real estate and the public.
