RCPS continues to be The Place for Spatial Risk Analysis.


The World Bank and Bogota...

RCPS Associates partnered with the WB to study crime and implement risk reduction strategies in Latin America. LEARN MORE
 

RTM in Paris...

In collaboration with RCPS, experts at the Observatoire national de la délinquance et des réponses pénales diagnose crime attractors with RTM and recently presented findings to French National Police Authorities. Displacement, it seems, occurs at high risk places nearby to but outside of hot spot areas.
 

Conjunctive Analysis for NIJ project...

WOW! Highest risk locations have 57 times greater likelihood of gun violence in Newark. 4% of the risky behavior settings account for 38% of all aggravated violence incidents in Kansas City. Learn more in this 3-page summary of findings from the Conjunctive Analysis of Risk Factor Configurations in 6 U.S. cities. Or, read the full reports for each city: Arlington Burglary; Chicago Shootings; Colorado Springs MVT; Glendale Robbery; Kansas City Violence; Newark Guns.
 

ACTION Policing...

More and more PDs are taking ACTION and making it work in their jurisdictions. ACTION Policing (Assessment, Connections, Tasks, Interventions, Outcomes, Notifications) has been tested through federally funded research in multiple cities and has resulted in significant reductions in violent and property crimes by as much as 42% compared to control areas. Stay tuned for the public release of the final report. It's a game-changer!
 

What is RTM?...

It's an evidence-based way to prevent crime with a focus on places, NOT people. And it helps police do this while protecting constitutional rights. Learn more online or check out the RTM panel presentations at the American Society of Criminology (ASC) conference in Washington, DC November 18-21, 2015.
 

IACA and IACP...

Several presentations were made by RCPS associates at this year's International Association of Crime Analysts conference in Denver, CO: "Using Spatial Risk Assessment to Understand the Environmental Risk Factors for Residence Location Among Registered Sex Offenders" and "Unique Risks for Unique Markets: Assessing Environ. Risk Factors for Various Illegal Drug Markets", to name a couple. RCPS will also be represented at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference (Chicago, IL) in October with a presentation of research findings.
 

Award...

RTM study ("Forecasting Crime Emergence and Persistence") wins 2015 Initiative for Multidisciplinary Research Teams Award.
 

On the Shelves...

Caplan & Kennedy's RTM book (Univ. of California Press) is scheduled for release in 2016. Any ideas for a cover design?!
 
The impact of being evidence-based, free, effective, accessible, and actionable...
AT LAST COUNT: There have been more than 13,000 downloads of RTM resources. Hundreds of RTMDx licenses have been granted to users around the world and in 32 states in the United States, plus the District of Columbia. RTM is reportedly now used by researchers or practitioners in over 30 countries.
