Russian TV Visits SCPD to Cover Predictive Policing

Channel One Russia, the highest-rated news television station in Russia, visited Santa Cruz Police yesterday to learn more about predictive policing. The station sent a crew to learn more about the program and share the information in a feature story in Russia in a few weeks. Channel 1 met with Dr. George Mohler of Santa Clara University, the developer of the predictive policing algorithm, as well as SCPD officers and staff to discuss how it works. A link to the broadcast will be provided when it airs.
