Miami-Dade Police Department: New patterns offer breakthroughs for cold cases

Miami-Dade.jpgWhat the Miami-Dade Police Department is doing with advanced analytics to close the toughest robbery cases is one facet of a broader Smarter Cities strategy followed by Florida’s largest county. 

The department recognized that reducing street crime is key not only to its citizens' quality of life, but also to the vitality of an essential economic driver—tourism.
 
By using advanced models to analyze cold robbery cases against its historical crime data, Palmer’s robbery unit is uncovering insights that are key to solving these cold cases. And as the successes mount, the unit’s detectives are embracing a new crime-fighting tool as a way to give them a second chance on what used to be dead-end cases.
