To effectively compare and contrast the application of Information Technology (IT) in optimizing police departments’ performance related to crime reduction versus random street patrols, it is important to understand what information technology police have available. ‘Predictive Policing’ refers to “any policing strategy or tactic that develops and uses information and advanced analysis to inform forward-thinking crime prevention” (Morgan, Predictive Policing Symposium: The Future of Prediction in Criminal Justice, 2009). Predictive policing focuses on: (1) integrating information and operations, (2) seeing the big picture, (3) cutting-edge analysis and technology, (4) linkage to performance and (5) the ability to adapt to changing conditions. Information Technology in policing can be used to optimize these five components through (1) analyzing patrol staffing and resource allocation, (2) predicting time and location of future incidents based on previous criminal patterns, (3) identifying suspects/persons-of-interest whom are likely to reoffend, (4) analyzing predation patterns and (5) conducting vulnerability/threat assessments, providing real-time traffic control, predicting increased criminal activity, suggesting best locations for random DUI screenings, et cetera (Pearsall, 2010) (Adams, 2012) (Morgan, Predictive Policing Symposium: Technical Breakout Session, 2012).
Predictive Policing Scott A. Lorenzen Strayer University Abstract What is Predictive Policing? Defined by the National Institute of Justice “Predictive policing is a way to predict, plan, dissuade possible crimes of occurring using current information with advanced analysis applied to the information to assist those in charge of daily security task.” (NIOJ, para 1). As Information Systems becomes more complex by the hour how authentic is or is not the data provided. Predictive Policing Compare and contrast the application of Information Technology (IT) to optimize police departments’ performance to reduce crime versus random patrols of the streets. Today's police have an advantage over their counterparts of the 60's and 70's with the help of the invention of the computer, new processes, and new calculations being processed.
Predictive Policing Tracy Hudson Dr. Edwin Otto CIS500-012VA016-1138-001 Info Syst Decision Making 20 October 2013 1. Compare and contrast the application of information technology (IT) to optimize police departments’ performance to reduce crime versus random patrols of the streets. A capable new technology with the intention of analyzing and predict crime tends before it occurs. Information Technology and Performance optimization of police department increase in crime rate, which is pervasive demands policing to be practical rather than reactive. It requires change from conventional too tough purposefully methods shared with better aptitude.
Assignment 5: Criminal Justice Careers Professor Douglas CRJ 100: Introduction to Criminal Justice November 28, 2012 In a paragraph, describe the profession you have chosen. The profession I have chosen is detective. This profession usually is a career that is grown into from the career of police officer, and the responsibilities include investigating crimes and criminal activity. They may interview witnesses and suspects, gather physical evidence and write detailed reports of their findings to be used in the criminal justice process. This type of work can be physically and mentally demanding.
Crime data Comparison CJA/314: Criminology Instructor: Chris Hammond By: Christine Kishlock Student: University of Phoenix Crime is a process that takes place when a law is broken; these laws are set in place to keep society at a social normal. When these laws are broken people normally report these activities but in the day and present time it has been more aware to criminal justice officials that most of the criminal behavior is not being reported. In this short comparison paper I will be going over to different metropolitan areas and comparing the rates in crime in a crime category. California holds several different metropolitan areas some are more wide spread than others and can go as far as half the state. The
Branch Scenario: Unit 2 Brytnei Morris January 21st, 2014 CJ340: Applied Criminal Justice Ethics Branch Scenario: Unit 2 For this week’s Branch Scenario provided in Unit 1, we encountered a situation which occurs pretty often within the police department. The scenario starts off with myself beginning a new position granted to me as a narcotics detective assigned to a precinct with a rampant drug problem. At the first briefing performed, the squad commander insists that the unit’s “extraordinary” tactics were helping in the declining rate of street crimes and homicides. After the briefing, I ask my partner about the previous remark made about the new tactics used aiding in the decreased rates. My partner explains that occasionally, the unit must plant evidence to arrest top-level dealers and use force to gain information from suspects.
Since the beginning of time, crime and punishment has been handed down by people who are considered law enforcement. In the olden times, the King was the sheriff, judge, jury, and punisher for crimes that where committed by individuals. Over the many years technology has increasingly continued to develop and has helped law enforcement officers in their investigating their cases and helped the officers in completing their jobs. The present policing trend is continuing to change with the technology. The transcription of information by law enforcement officers is a new popular trend.
Crime Comparison Paper Lisa Burns CJA/314 December 22, 2014 Jean-Pierre Lapre Crime Comparison Paper Uniform Crime Reports are a system that the FBI utilizes for reporting crimes. The UCR is broken down as to what type of crime, where the crime occurred, when the crime occurred, as well as who performed the crime, along with much more information. If it is done accurately, it will give an accurate guide to the crimes committed and the areas to which they were committed. If done and reported correctly, it will also show where the most crime happens and give sight to areas needing more police presence. I will show the violent crimes in Dallas, Texas compared to the violent crimes in San Antonio, Texas as well as the population of both areas.
Nevertheless, both locations have experienced a substantial decline in crime, however, as determined by the Uniform Crime Report, UCR, this seems to be interpreted as a standard fact nationwide (Fbi.gov, 2010). According to the Uniform Crime Report's data (Fbi.gov, 2010), the city of Los Angeles has more crimes reported in the year 2010 compared to reports from Long Beach. Violent crimes according to national and regional figures, has become more of an issue for both of these cities. In 2010, Los Angeles with a population of 3,841,707, reported a total of 21,484 violent crimes, while Long Beach with a population of 462,267 reported a total of 2,720 violent crimes (Fbi.gov, 2010). A startling 293 murders were reported in 2010 in Los Angeles and 32 murders for Long Beach and yet it is even more shocking to know there are far more forcible rapes that occur in both of these areas.
As explained by Chrissie Long, a graduate student at the Harvard Kennedy School, the study found that “immigration actually appears to have a protective effect on crime,” as the presence of immigrants in New York neighborhoods “often means decreased crime rates” (Melber 2013). Multiple studies have taken place over the last few years to actually determine whether of not crime takes a negative toll on the society, and more times than not, the results show that crime has actually decreased. Once again, the most commonly held negative belief toward immigration was proved wrong. So why is it still such a big
