SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PredPol Inc., the global leader in predictive analytics for law enforcement, was recently recognized as a member of Government Technology's GovTech 100. The GovTech 100 is a list of the leading companies providing innovative services to improve or transform government.
PredPol's crime prediction technology, deployed in over 60 US cities and on three continents, is an innovative software application that allows law enforcement agencies to more effectively deploy their resources, enabling dramatic reductions of crime in municipalities of all sizes. Such reductions in the rates of crime affect the quality of life for all citizens in these cities, in direct ways such as safer streets and lower crime, and in indirect ways such as property values and improved relations between police agencies and the communities they serve.
Developed by leading academics in the University of California system and Santa Clara University, in conjunction with elements of the Los Angeles Police Department, PredPol has been shown to be significantly better at predicting crime than existing best practice. Agencies using PredPol have seen first year reductions in targeted crimes as high as 30%, with multi-year reductions ranging in excess of 50%.
"We are pleased to be recognized for our contributions to improving the efficacy of law enforcement," stated Larry Samuels, PredPol's CEO. "Being named to the GovTech 100 is really a recognition of the success of our large partner agencies such as Atlanta Police Department and Los Angeles Police Department, and smaller agencies such as Modesto (CA) Police Department and Norcross (GA) Police Department. While PredPol provides a new level of analytics performance to law enforcement, we are aware that without the efforts of our law enforcement partners, the dramatic results seen by using PredPol's patented technology would not be possible."
Based in Santa Cruz, California, PredPol Inc. is focused on developing and deploying 21st century analytics technologies to law enforcement agencies globally. For further information please contact Info@PredPol.com.
