Map showing police hot spots.National Discussion on Predictive Policing

Predictive policing is a relatively new law enforcement concept that integrates several approaches—cutting-edge crime analysis, crime fighting technology and intelligence-led policing—to inform forward thinking crime prevention strategies and tactics.

To refine the concept of predictive policing and discuss its impact on crime and justice, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) brought together researchers, practitioners, and leaders to the Nation’s first symposium. The 2-day event was a springboard for action and the launch of a continuing dialog with police chiefs, law enforcement experts, criminal justice researchers, crime analysts, and national police organizations.

The U.S. Department of Justice is supporting research in a number of police departments nationwide. Some are participating in demonstration projects of specific predictive policing models. See a list of projects that are testing predictive policing models.
