The meeting will be held in central London on June 20th, 1.30-4.30pm. Confirmed speakers so far are Oliver Hutt UCL, Martin Rahman West Yorkshire Police, and Ekta Shah/Alex Dunnett from MoJ.
Oliver will talk about his research work on modelling the impact of police patrols, including how the accuracy of crime stats affects which locations are defined as hotspots, how long officers should patrol hotspots, and how to evaluate the effectiveness of preventative patrol when dealing with highly targeted and dynamic patrol locations, especially when the likelihood of a crime occurring at all is actually very low.
Martin will cover W Yorks Police's Athena project :a whole system approach to planning and delivering investigative capacity, while Ekta and Alex will describe their OR related work in the Ministry of Justice.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to present to the group topics relating to Criminal Justice or OR/analytics methods which may be of use to those working in this area.
