CIS 500 Assignment 1 Predictive Policing


In 1994, the New York City Police Department adopted a law enforcement crime fighting strategy known as COMPSTAT (COMPuter STATistics). COMPSTAT uses Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to map the locations of where crimes occur, identify “hotspots”, and map problem areas. COMPSTAT has amassed a wealth of historical crime data. Mathematicians have designed and developed algorithms that run against the historical data to predict future crimes for police departments. This is known as predictive policing. Predictive policing has led to a drop in burglaries, automobile thefts, and other crimes in some cities.

  1. Compare and contrast the application of information technology (IT) to optimize police departments’ performance to reduce crime versus random patrols of the streets.

        1. Input
        2. Processing
        3. Output
        4. Feedback
        5. Determine how information systems have allowed police departments that implement tools such as COMPSTAT to respond to crime faster.
        6. Apply the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analysis (SWOT analysis) on behalf of police departments that intend to implement predictive policing.
        7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. You may use the resources above or others of your choosing.
