Predictive Policing

More data and new data requires a new way of unlocking its potential

The Police Object Library is a web application that provides a completely new way of describing complex data and then unlocking the power of that information, including predictive analytics, for everybody, not just analysts.

Not another dashboard

The Police Object Library is definitely not just another dashboard and business intelligence tool.

Dashboards have their place and are effective at showing how key indicators are performing. Sometimes they provide an element of interactivity allowing users to choose time periods or other fixed parameters.

But, if an officer or manager wants to find out just a little more, or ask a question in a slightly different way, then its back to the analysts and report writers.

With the Police Object Library there is complete freedom to look at and analyse any information made available to you. Furthermore, once an area of interest has been described it can be used anywhere else.

For example, an officer is automatically alerted to a higher than normal incidence of burglary in his sector. With the current dashboard the officer can see incidences of burglary and even break them down by area and date. However they cannot link this with prisoner releases and apply predictive analytics without going back to the analyst.

Not a problem with the Police Object Library.

The officer looks at the burglary occurrences on a map and then overlays this with recently released offenders. The officer is oblivious to the complex data and use of multiple data sets that is happening behind the scenes. He then drags onto the screen a predictive object that shows recently released offenders with a high likelihood of reoffending. This gives a prioritised list of suspects. Furthermore by simple adding an object for previous conviction of burglary the list is narrowed down to one or two individuals.

All with just 3 simple on screen actions.

  • No new dashboard
