Predictive policing, data mining and predictive analysis support the overall mission of law enforcement. This technology builds upon the existing models of crime analysis and crime mapping technology. CompStat and PredPol are two examples of this type of technology. However, this technology is controversial and directly affects the public’s right to privacy. Students will describe, analyze and critique this type of technology in detail and examine the potential implications (assess the strengths, weaknesses and potentials) and benefits to law enforcement and the public. Examine the role of a law enforcement manager (how would you manage or use the technology).
