Predictive Policing

Team Name: 
PredPol

In the 2012 film Minority Report, it shows a world where crimes are predicted before they occurred. This became the basis for our project for predictive policing with the intention of assisting police in fighting crime.

We utilised Coordinate level data for non-domestic assaults and robberies occurring in Sydney LGA in outdoor and public places to teach our predictive algorithm to learn from the historical data and to forecasts for the future.

The purpose of our project was to support law enforcement by focusing their efforts towards area which are more likely to face crime. Using only the month, day and time, a user can return the locations of crimes as well as the likelihood of the crime occurring.
