PC Pre­cise­ly Pre­dicts Felony

Police are always try­ing to get inside crim­i­nals’ minds to pre­dict their next move. In Yonkers, New York, last week a police com­put­er turned this guess­ing game into a sci­ence by cor­rect­ly fore­cast­ing the time and place of a robbery—and dis­patched offi­cers to nab the perpetrators.
Lt. James McLaugh­lin of the Yonkers Police Depart­ment tech­ni­cal sup­port unit used a PC to ana­lyze crime sta­tis­tics and pre­dict the time and loca­tion of a rob­bery before it occurred.
