Crime Pattern Analysis and Predictive Policing
28th April 2015
The aim of this event was to bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to discuss the opportunities presented by advanced statistical modelling of crime events and improvements in interactive visualisation of crime data and modelling results.
A team based at St Andrews University around Dr Janine Illian (School of Mathematics and Statistics) have received funding from EPSRC/St Andrews University Impact Acceleration Funds to run a series of workshops. These relate to the development of new statistical methods for analysing crime patterns and predicting their occurrence in space and time. The outputs from such work have important implications for efficient and effective police deployment and crime prevention.
