Miami-Dade Police Department: Finding hidden patterns in street crimes helps identify robbery suspects
Using a Smarter Cities framework, Miami-Dade Police Department filters current crime data through historical crime patterns to provide detectives with breakthrough insights.
Instrumented: Key crime details, from location to modus operandi, are captured by detectives early in the investigation and fed into the Blue Palms model.
Interconnected: By integrating all of the department’s data from previously solved crimes into a common repository, the system identifies a series of distinctive crime signatures or common patterns.
Intelligent: By analyzing the data from unsolved cases against known crime signatures from solved cases, the model’s algorithms can identify specific high-probability suspects, thus enabling detectives to focus their investigative resources on the most likely individuals.
