Abstract

Predictive policing is a new concept for law enforcement in the 21st century. While still in its infancy and relatively untested, predictive policing has the potential to change the way in which law enforcement deals with crime and victims.

This essay describes predictive policing in terms of its definition and roots, the theories and models that have been developed, applications in law enforcement, and the issues that surround it.
