NBC Bay Area did a story on Milipitas Police's recent deployment of PredPol. Here is part of the text and the link:
Milpitas police have a new way of patrolling the streets thanks to technology.
A new computer program the Milpitas Police Department is using predicts where criminals will strike next in the city. The program, Predpol, analyzes crime data to help determine a prediction.
In addition to the Milpitas, police departments in Santa Cruz and Los Angeles are using the program.
A state grant is paying for the program. Click here for the video.
