Why Predictive Policing?


The National Crime Records Bureau’s National Report indicates 72,29,193 cognizable crimes in the year 2014. This shows an increase of 8.9% from 2013 when the crimes were 66,40,378. Crime rates are increasing at one end and they are finding innovative approaches and adopting smart technologies to perform crimes. Urban cities and metropolitan areas are the most affected regions by criminals. Safety of citizens is at stake in many leading cities. The installation of CCTV cameras is a small step toward safeguarding citizen’s lives however it does not curb the issue as a whole. What is required is a predictive technology that will curb criminal activities and protect cities from criminal attacks and offer a safe place to live.

Technology adoption by city police forces will enable predictive policing that will bring down crimes to a large extent. The police with its limited staff stand to gain with a technological solution that enforces advanced tools for proactive preparation and quick solutions. Predictive policing uses analytical techniques to identify suspicious people. Predictive policing is a highly-sophisticated system that assists police in preventing crime, past crime resolution, and identification of potential criminals. It aids the police departments in addressing criminal cases effectively and efficiently. Predictive policing helps police stay several steps ahead of criminals and drastically reduces crime rate in the city.

With surveillance and security features set, crime rates can possibly reduce to a greater extent. Real-time monitoring of suspect offenders prevents them from activating a crime. Surveillance tools records crime prone regions and deliver updated reports concerning them. As a whole, predictive policing is a novel approach for enhancing police endeavours toward keeping the city safe and crime-free.
