oa CSIR Science Scope - Crime mapping proves its worth as crime-fighting tool : behavioural modelling



Crime mapping can be used at three levels, namely strategic, operational and tactical. At the strategic level, crime mapping is used to deploy police resources effectively to combat crime. An example could be where high incidents of crime per police station are compared against resources available. If there is some correlation, resources can be transferred from well-resourced police stations to assist low-resourced stations to combat crime. Another application at the strategic level is to plan specific national or provincial crime combating operations based on the mapped crime levels.
