Police computer to stop crime before it happens - AOL Money UK

Police computer to stop crime before it happens - AOL Money UK | Innovation in Policing | Scoop.it

SIMON DAWSON/AP/Press Association ImagesWest Midlands police have revealed a new computer programme, which they say can predict where burglaries are.

West Midlands police have revealed a new computer programme, which they say can predict where burglaries are going to happen. The idea is that they will use it to stop crime before it takes place.

The software, known as Operation Swordfish, works on the fact that burglary victims are often the target of crime again shortly after the first incident.

Research from the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science also revealed that direct neighbours and the neighbours of neighbours are vulnerable, especially within a two week period after a burglary has taken place. Almost 30% of burglaries in Birmingham in 2011 were committed near to where a burglary had recently taken place.

The software will therefore identify recent victims of burglaries. Within 24 hours they will be visited to 'target harden' the property – checking for weaknesses which would allow offenders to easily get in – such as inadequate locks on doors or windows. Locks, alarms and timers are also supplied to the homeowner in a bid to prevent a further attack on their home.

She's been a Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge. She sat on the Palo Alto City Council and was a Stanford University provost. And now, LaDoris H. Cordell, San Jose's Independent Police Auditor, is adding cable television show host to her résumé.

 

Debuting Wednesday at 7 p.m., Cordell's "The IPA Roadshow" will feature 30-minute interviews on CreaTV's Silicon Valley Channel 30, which is available to Comcast cable customers in San Jose and Campbell. She'll be showcasing her office and digging deep into the backgrounds of Silicon Valley news makers, often focusing on police-related matters, and other times, not.

 

Her first guest will be San Jose police Chief Chris Moore.
