SUPPORT FOR PREDICTIVE POLICING IN ARIZONA .

Arizona may become the first state to invest in predictive technologies to stop crimes before they occur.
 
KATE WHEELING  MAR 26, 2015 .
 
Arizona lawmakers are looking to invest $2 million in state funds in predictive policing technologies. Up until now, only individual police departments throughout the United States have used funding for the emerging technology; if the bill passes, Arizona would become the first state in the nation to throw money toward the technology.

The new bill would direct funds to one-year pilot projects to develop software that can predict all sorts of offenses—property crime, drug activity, traffic accidents, and gang and gun violence—in both urban and rural settings. The projects would likely kick off in Phoenix, Mesa, and Lake Havasu City.

While the technologies may be new, the ideas behind predictive policing are not. Police departments have been trying to get ahead of crime for decades. In 1994, the New York City Police Department introduced CompStat—a precursor to predictive policing that uses crime data and computer-mapping technology to visualize crime patterns and inform police responses. The program has been credited with dramatically decreasing New York City crime rates, which did in fact drop in the years after it was implemented. After that, the program rapidly spread to police departments across the U.S.
