Our work using predpol has been going on for a number of months and begun with a pilot in the North Kent area. Today’s action is the first in a series of all-out days that will be regularly taking place in the county.
Officers still go on patrol as normal and the boxes give them an idea of where to concentrate their efforts. If nothing happens whilst they are patrolling it is still successful, we may have prevented a crime from being committed.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine whilst another man is in custody on suspicion of possessing cannabis following an international day of action which saw officers in the US join forces with Kent Police to showcase the effectiveness of predictive policing.
Predictive Policing or ‘predpol’ as it is also known is an intelligence led computer programme that uses an algorithm to pin-point police to zones where crime is most likely to occur.
The programme utilises advanced analytics to read the crime data against patterns of criminal behaviour to allow the force to get the best use of their resources.
