Predictive Policing Symposiums

William Bratton, Former Chief, Los Angeles Police Department and CEO, Altegrity Security Consulting

NIJ has convened two symposiums where researchers, practitioners and law enforcement leaders developed and discussed the concept of predictive policing and its impact on crime and justice. Learn about:

First Predictive Policing Symposium

Los Angeles, November 18, 2009

Researchers and practitioners gathered to discuss the emerging framework and its impact on the future of law enforcement.

Participants explored the policy implications, privacy issues and technical elements of predictive policing. Agencies that had received competitively awarded grants to implement and evaluate predictive policing programs reported on their plans for the next 12 months.

The Los Angeles Police Department hosted the symposium and opened its doors for participants to tour its new headquarters and Regional Crime Center, both state-of-the art facilities that provide an ideal setting to apply predictive policing principles.

The symposium was sponsored by the National Institute of Justice and Bureau of Justice Assistance.
