Chicago Police Exploring High Tech Efforts To Fight Crime

The Chicago Police have teamed up with the Illinois Institute of Technology and the Rand Corporation on a high tech project that will try to pinpoint crime hot spots.  The National Institute of Justice has provided $200,000 to set up a special project that Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weiss believes "will lead to smarter policing."  The police will feed daily data of criminal activity into a computer database that will provide real time data of how and where gangs are operating.  "Predictive Analytics" will then analyze the data and predict future criminal activity.  The data will be analyzed by experts at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Before this project, the data involving criminal activity was compiled on a yearly basis.
