In 1994, the New York
City Police Department adopted a law enforcement crime fighting strategy known
as COMPSTAT (COMPuter STATistics). COMPSTAT uses Geographic Information Systems
(GIS) to map the locations of where crimes occur, identify “ hotspots”, and map
problem areas. COMPSTAT has amassed a wealth of historical crime data.
Mathematicians have designed and developed algorithms that run against the
historical data to predict future crimes for police departments. This is known
as predictive policing. Predictive policing has led to a drop in burglaries,
automobile thefts, and other crimes in some cities.
Write a four to five
(4-5) page paper in which you:
Compare and contrast
the application of information technology (IT) to optimize police departments’
performance to reduce crime versus random patrols of the streets.
Describe how COMPSTAT,
as an information system (IS), implements the four (4) basic IS functions:
information systems have allowed police departments that implement tools such
as COMPSTAT to respond to crime faster.
Apply the strengths,
weaknesses, opportunities, and threats analysis (SWOT analysis) on behalf of
police departments that intend to implement predictive policing.
