NIJ Funds Predictive Policing Demonstration Initiative

Sidebar to the article Predictive Policing: The Future of Law Enforcement? by Beth Pearsall

NIJ has launched a demonstration initiative to develop, test and evaluate predictive policing in a real-world, real-time context. The Institute awarded planning grants to seven law enforcement agencies.

NIJ has also funded a team from the RAND Corp. to evaluate the projects. The evaluation is designed to address questions such as what works, what does not and what is promising in predictive policing.

For More Information on the initiative, see the summary of the Predictive Policing Symposium discussion.
