The UK’s fight against crime is turning to computer based maps in order to pinpoint criminal behaviour more effectively. Crime & Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) in areas including West Midlands, Barking & Dagenham, Newcastle, Nottingham and South Yorkshire are now using a software Crime Analyst from ESRI (UK), to make data mapping and analysis a more mainstream weapon against criminal behaviour. Crime Analyst helps crime fighting by creating reliable crime maps of geographical areas in minutes, uncovering crime patterns, like journey to crime, repeat offences, time of crime and geographical hotspots and reducing the time taken to compare and link similar offences.
